THERE are reports of rogue sheep on Banbury Road in Oxford, near Cutteslowe.

Several people spotted a flock of about 15 to 20 sheep just before 6pm.

Josh Stone, from Kidlington, said: “I was just coming home up the Banbury Road on the bus and there was a load of sheep on the other side of the road.

“I don’t know where they came from, they’ve obviously escaped from somewhere. They seemed to be by themselves.”

Simon Conaty tweeted: “Flock of sheep down Banbury Road, hilarity.”
