Putting the 'moo' in commuting? The M5 was blocked in both directions in Gloucestershire last night - because a wandering cow had brought it to a standstill.
As baffled commuters waited in their cars (no doubt beeping their horns), Gloucestershire Road Police rushed out to save the day before the troublesome rambler could milk the situation any longer.
Finally, they tweeted the happy news that the cow had been reunited with its farmer - and the road could get moo-ving once more.

Glastonbury Abbey's famous Holy Thorn has been shortlisted in the Tree of the Year contest.
While the votes are being cast, here are ten things you might now know about this famous flowerer:
- The Holy Thorn spends Christmas with the Queen - the custom of sending a cutting to decorate the Royal festive table dates back to the 17th century
- It bears flowers and berries at the same time - unlike ordinary hawthorn trees, it flowers at Christmas time as well as in the spring
- The belief that the Glastonbury Holy Thorn blossomed on Christmas Day created great stress in 1753, when the Gregorian Calendar was adopted to bring Britain into line with Europe and eleven days were dropped from the month of September:
A vast concourse of people attended the noted thorn on Christmas-day, new style; but, to their great disappointment, there was no appearance of its blowing, which made them watch it narrowly the 5th of January, the Christmas-day, old style, when it blowed as usual.
- It is associated with legends about Joseph of Arimathea and the arrival of Christianity in Britain
- The "original" Glastonbury Thorn was cut down and burned as a relic of superstition during the English Civil War.
- Legend has it that as the thorn was cut down, its thorns blinded the axe man in one eye
- Since then, the tree has been vandalised multiple times
- The original tree has been propagated a few times, with one tree growing at Glastonbury Abbey and another at the Church of St John
- In 1965, the Queen erected a wooden cross at Glastonbury with the following inscription:
The cross, the symbol of our faith, the gift of Queen Elizabeth II, marks a Christian sanctuary so ancient that only legend can record its origin
