Bulls escape field and cause havoc in Godinton Park, Ashford

Residents of Godinton Park have been in shock this lunchtime, after spotting several bulls on their streets.

It is believed around nine bulls escaped from nearby fields around the residential area of Ashford, before making their way down through Springwood Drive and other areas.

Although, many couldn't believe what was happening and found the situation amusing, the animals have been causing havoc by disrupting traffic as well as damaging cars with their horns.

One resident said: "The bulls came from the field behind me, I don’t know how they got out.

"They walked up the road, stopping traffic and damaged one resident's car and ate the flowers in his garden. A few members of the community herded them back to the fields."
