Cambridgeshire police officers were given a different type of mission on Wednesday evening (October 27) after over 300 sheep escaped from their field.
Officers arrived at the scene to discover the sheep running loose on the road between Littleport and Wisbech.
A spokesperson said: “Our officers were counting sheep on Wednesday (October 27). Not to help them fall asleep, but actual sheep.
“At the scene, officers broke up the street party and the sheep were rounded up, all 300 or so of them!
“Thankfully, there were no problems along the way, and all sheep were accounted for and returned home safely.
“All’s wool that ends wool.”
After posting about the street party on social media, a number of people have congratulated the police for their efforts.
