A couple got an unexpected holiday surprise on a beach near St Tropez, when a boar charged at them from the sea.

The couple spotted the beast in the water, mistaking it for a dog. It was only when it got nearer they saw it was an 80-kilo boar.

A friend got out a video camera to film the boar swimming, when it approached the rocks the couple were on, climbed up, and ran at them full speed.

The couple then tried to warn other beach dwellers what was coming when the boar ran off in their direction.
