Bull caused disruption for Alfreton drivers

A BULL caused disruption to drivers in Alfreton by wandering dangerously close to the side of the road.

The bovine had wandered out of a nearby field on Chesterfield Road in the town just before 5pm on Wednesday. Passing drivers made several calls to police as they feared it might step on to the 60mph road. A team of officers arrived at the scene at 5.30pm, but the bull had already realised the grass was not so green on the other side - and had returned to his native field.
