Herd of cows on the loose in Loughborough

A herd of up to 20 cows are on the loose at a Loughborough housing estate.

The cattle were spotted on the Grange Park estate and were moving along, eating grass as they went.

Police are on the scene and are trying to contain the cows and to trace the owners.

We received a call at 8.33am from a member of the public to tell us that a lot of cows were on the street. We were told they were in Newstead Way and were heading for Alan Turing Way. We are making efforts to trace the owners of the cattle. Our advice to people is to avoid the area at the moment until the cows are off the streets.
