City school invaded by sheep
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.”
