For decades they've been the butt of jokes about Milton Keynes - and now the famous concrete cows are moving back home for a quieter life.

The original herd was built at the town's museum in 1978 but for the last ten years, those cows have been on show in the middle of a busy shopping centre.

The world-famous concrete cows in Milton Keynes are to move back to the place of their birth at MK Museum.

The introduction of a new community arts space at intu MK means a move for the cows which were created by Canadian artist Liz Leyh with local schoolchildren in 1978.

Their return also means a reunion with the Museum's snowman, created by Leyh during her residency.

They've been on display at Intu shopping centre for the last ten years, but will move back home to the museum a week on Monday - 25th April.

The cows weigh about a tonne each and will be individually lifted into place.

"We are thrilled to be welcoming the concrete cows back home for our visitors to enjoy. Within the next few years, our new galleries will be telling the whole story of this area, from pre-history to the present time and the cows are an important part of the story. It's fitting that they will be taking their place alongside other great iconic moments, monuments, stories, people and organisations."

– Bill Griffiths, museum director

People living in a Fenland town say they are growing tired of a 'promised' supermarket that has been standing empty in a Cambridgeshire town ever since it was built two years ago.

The brand new Tesco store at Chatteris near Ely, cost the company £22 million pounds to build, but then it axed plans to open it as part of a cost-cutting measure.
