City school in­vaded by sheep

Western Daily Press - - News -

PO­LICE were called af­ter a school was over­run – by a flock of sheep.

The an­i­mals in­vaded the pri­mary school ground be­fore graz­ing on grass in the cor­ner of the play­ground.

Shocked par­ents called in po­lice, who lo­cated the farmer and ar­ranged for the sheep to be col­lected.

By then the sheep had al­ready left their mark, and the grounds of Stoke Hill Ju­nior School in Ex­eter, Devon, were cov­ered in muck.

Mum Zion Wil­liams said: “It was an amaz­ing sight, we couldn’t be­lieve our eyes. There was poo ev­ery­where. It looked like they had been there all night – the chil­dren loved it.

“We saw at least 20 or 30 sheep. It’s not a very ru­ral area, so they must have walked quite far.”

Devon and Corn­wall Po­lice said: “A lo­cal PCSO dis­cov­ered that a mem­ber of the pub­lic had man­aged to herd the sheep safely onto the grounds of Stoke Hill Pri­mary School and close the gates.”
