This morning, shop owners on Market Street were greeted by a mystery shopper – a black and white cow!
This black and white bovine browser surprised shopkeepers as they opened their shops at around 8:30am. It casually wandered down Market Street towards School Lane before being apprehended by the police and a few brave shoppers outside the Henry Buns Bakery.
PC Ben Nicholas confirmed that the cow, who has been named ‘Daisy‘ by 7 year old by-stander Ralph Little, has been checked by a vet and is temporarily being held at a farm nearby, although there have been no reports of missing cattle in the area this year.
Market Street re-opened at 11:30.
