Cows on tracks at Yalding spark delays and standard Twitter puns

By KentOnline reporter

Commuters have faced delays this morning after cows moo-ved onto the train tracks.

Yet rather than express their anger at the "udderly ridiculous" disruption, Twitter users took the opportunity to tweet some outrageous puns.

Trains were unable to pass in both directions at Yalding for a brief period.

They were later allowed to run at a reduced speed, affecting timetables.

Southeastern tweeted: "We've received reports of some cows on the line near #Yalding meaning trains are unable to mooooove in both directions currently."

In reply, @tecchiegirl write: "Udderly ridiculous, I can’t believe you are milking this for what it’s worth. Are you sure we’re not talking bullocks here? (Sorry.. just had to...)."

Another tweet from @ThomasjayCarlG5 said: "So ask them would they like a train ride to the moooooooovies. They can have the milk express."

A Southeastern spokesman added the issue is not expected to cause widespread disruption and that staff were en-route to move the cows along.
