This is the moment a parish council meeting turned into a punch up - all over where sheep were allowed to graze. The allotments committee meeting of Briercliffe Parish Council, near Burnley, descended into a brawl on Monday night when talks broke down.
It's believed to have started over a year long dispute concerning former parish councillor Sarah Seed and the grazing rights of her sheep Millie. Mrs Seed has been involved in protracted negotiations, along with fellow councillor Colin Meeks, who has a nine-strong flock. It's reported after they were told they can no longer use the village site Coun Seed stood down.
Discussions became heated over the issue and the meeting was adjourned when things turned physical. Lancashire Constabulary is now investigating possible public order offences and reviewing video footage.
