MOTORISTS on the A12 south of Lowestoft encountered an unusual traffic hazard early today after a herd of cows wandered on to the road.

Suffolk police received a call at about 5.45am that a dozen or more cows had found their way on to the road at Kessingland.

A force spokesman said that officers were sent to the scene but the cows “found their own way back into their field” after a few minutes and caused only minor disruption. The road was not closed at any stage.

The spokesman said the farmer who owned the cattle had been informed.
