Police officers working in Norfolk can find themselves helping many different people or animals stay on the right side of the law as one officer working in Downham Market found out.

On Friday, April 6, PCR Rod Morrisoon tweeted a video of him herding a group of runaway sheep back towards their field.

He said: “One minute I’m herding intoxicated people on Norfolk street to the taxi rank and next I’m herding naughty sheep back into their field.

“I know which group was harder to herd, can you guess too? #notjustcrime #sheepwhisperer”

The 11-second video showing the cute runways being herded back home has had more than 300 views and attracted lots of sheep based puns.
