Two police officers were tied up looking after sheep that had encroached onto a road in Thetford this morning
The animals, which were believed to have escaped from a farm close to the Forest Retail Park, wandered onto London Road at about 8.30am.
A spokesman for Norfolk police said some of the sheep were standing by the road, while others had walked onto the carriageway.
The sheep were eventually cleared from the carriageway but police officers spent several hours making sure that they did not walk back into the road. Officers were also unable to determine who owned the sheep.
A spokesman said that they could have done with a few dogs to round up the sheep.
