Police were called shortly after 8.25am this morning to reports of a large number of cattle blocking the B1118 at Owl’s Green, Woodbridge.

The herd needed to be returned to a nearby field just two miles north of the A1120.

Suffolk Constabulary were forced to close the road between the B1117 and B1116 so that the cows could be rounded up.

Thankfully the wondering bovine made it back to their home.

The road was re-opened at 10.40am.

No cows were harmed.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
