A herd of cows caused chaos after they escaped onto a busy road.

Police were called to Roedean Way, Brighton, shortly after midday after drivers reported around 40 cows in the road.

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said: “The farmer was called and he had them back in the field at 12.38pm.”

The breakout follows a similar incident in December last year.

Back then 40 cows were spotted pottering along a residential street in Roedean, Someone from nearby Roedean School spotted them on CCTV as they strolled around the edge of the private school.

I am assuming that this photo was taken of the farmers stock at 12.38 precisely when they were safely in the field.

Is it the same farmer who lost them before... Why are we not being told... Why the photo of feminists?
