Surprised residents on a quiet cul-de-sac were woken to this a-moo-sing sight on Sunday morning - a herd of cows stampeding across their lawns.

The 30-strong herd left hoof prints six inches deep in some front gardens on Larkfield Road, having escaped from a nearby field.

James Lee, 20, filmed the cows from his house at around 6am on Sunday morning.

The retail sales worker said: “It was a quite a confusing sight to wake up to, very odd and extremely surreal to see at that point in the morning.

“When I heard the noise I first thought it was a family member in the house snoring but then I took a look outside.”

Some lawns were left with hoof prints six inches deep, while others were left covered in cow pats.

“I know they came for a field about a mile away from here but I’m not sure whose cows they are,” said Mr Lee.

“They came up the alleyway, spent five minutes on the road and then went back again.”
