Cows escape onto Crosspool streets

A herd of cattle took temporary residence on the streets of Crosspool earlier today.

At around 6am this morning around a dozen cows were spotted outside Aligarh restaurant in the precinct. Some animals were seen using the pedestrian crossing to cross the road.

By 6.30am the herd, which included some calves, had set off towards Watt Lane.

Reports filtered through that the cows had been seen on Worcester Close, Sandygate Park Road and Hagg Lane, peacefully exploring front gardens, back gardens and grass verges.

By mid-morning the cows were being herded away from Hagg Lane.

Do you know where the cows escaped from? Please let us know. And it would be great to know that they all got back home safely!
