A GROUP of cows that had escaped from a field in Rudgeway caused problems for motorists on the A38, while police worked to move them.

Eyewitnesses say that around eight to ten cows were involved in the incident, having made their way onto the road, which held up traffic.

Police were called out just after 2.30pm, following reports from the public, and were able to help round the cows up and return them to their field by 3.10pm.
