Thanks to Mrs Erdleigh for bringing this one to our attention:
A cow caused udder chaos when it forced the closure of the M25 this morning after escaping from its field during rush hour. The animal was reported to be on the verge and hard shoulder of the clockwise carriage, between junctions five and six, near Godstone, at about 09.00 BST.
While police brought traffic to a halt, the cow was moo-ved back into its field as repairs were carried out on the fence where the farm animal escaped. A Highways Agency spokesman said: ‘The farmer took the other cows out of the field while the repairs were being done.’
The closure only lasted six minutes and traffic flow was quickly restored.
They certainly milked that story for every pun it was worth.
