A cow caused udder chaos on the streets after deciding to stop traffic as she snaked onto the M5.
Highways England was forced to temporarily prevent traffic from coming down the motorway when the animal came onto the road.
CCTV showed the cow walking down the M5, with tons of traffic forced to stop behind the animal. Highways officials say they have since been able to move it from the main road leading to Birmingham.
The highways stopped traffic going north and south between junction 19 for Portishead and junction 20 for Clevedon at around 7:46 a.m. reports the Bristol Post.
They tweeted, “There is currently a cow in the main lane. We have stopped all traffic going south and we will be stopping traffic going north shortly. Please follow all signs and signals.
For ten minutes they tweeted to the drivers: “The cow has now safely returned to a field and is free of living alleys. Thank you for your patience during this high steak incident.”
Yesterday (October 2nd), motorists on the M5 motorway suffered long delays due to surface water and poor driving conditions.
Surface water has been reported on the M5 in a southerly direction from J19 (Portishead) to J20 (Clevedon), where the speed limit has been lowered to 80 km / h for safety reasons.
