Cow brings traffic to a standstill

One of the pleasures of being in the county is that I am able to buy the Shropshire Star.

Today's issue features a story about a cow escaping from a field near the Shirehall in Shrewsbury and holding up the traffic. For some unaccountable reason it has failed to make the newspaper's website.

The Star has an endearing habit of mixing local and national news on the same page. So this story about a cow appears next to a photograph of Catherine Zeta-Jones accepting a Tony for her role in a revival of A Little Night Music.

I can remember one Cow in the 1980s bringing the whole country to a standstill
