Rush-hour traffic on the M5 motorway at Burnham-On-Sea was held up on Wednesday morning (June 28th) after a cow wandered onto the M5 motorway and would not mooo-ve!

The animal wandered onto the hard shoulder of the southbound carriageway between junction 22 at Burnham and junction 21 for Weston at around 8am.

Efforts were made to coax the frightened cow away from the road, and traffic was held up before returning to normal at around 8.30am.

Earlier in the morning, a swan had also landed on the M5 near Burnham, prompting scores of calls to police. Both animals were safely removed.
