An “angry” cow started hoofing its way to Ripon after its trailor overturned on the A61 at Ripley.

The cow was one of eight rescued by police after a tractor and trailor overturned just before 2pm today (Tuesday).

A police spokesman said the cow had its hoof stuck, and once freed, started “angrily walking down the road to Ripon”.

It was rescued from the busy main road and placed in a nearby field, where it remains, she said.

There were delays after the accident while police freed the cows, but the road is now cleared.
