An escaped bull caused police to block off a road in Norwich for more than three hours.
Norfolk police had warned drivers they could face delays on Dereham Road because of the animal, which got loose close to the junction with Hellesdon Road just before 12.30pm.
The bull then moved down to fields off Hellesdon Road, but kept wandering back into the road.
Police cars blocked the road to stop cars and pedestrians heading near the upset animal.
The road finally re-opened just before 4pm.
