With millions of people stuck at home sharing light-hearted content online to alleviate the tedium of the lockdown, video of a duck family crossing the street went viral on social media.

Russian police stopped traffic on a busy road to allow a family of ducks to cross safely.

The police are seen moving a traffic sign to stop the flow of cars and guide the ducks to the side of the road.

The duck was followed by her ducklings, and the policeman escorted them across. He left when they went safely across.

The duck family has reached their final destination, a small lake several metres away from the busy traffic.
