Sheep on loose on Bagshot RoadBy Jennie Slevin

A sheep had a close shave this afternoon after it found its way onto a busy road.
Police were called to the Bagshot Road (A322) at 1.15pm today (Wednesday) when drivers noticed the poor lamb stuck in the central reservation of the dual carriageway.
Richard Wilson, an airline pilot from Windlesham, was driving towards Bracknell when he saw the stranded creature. He said: "I was overtaking when I saw it so I must have been doing nearly 70 miles an hour.
"I thought it was going to step out in front of my car so I slowed down.
"I didn't think it would last very long there so when I got to the shops I called the police."
Richard drove back home along the same road half an hour later and said the sheep had gone.
A police spokeswoman said: "Police were called to a report of a sheep in the first lane of the A322.
"They managed to put a road block in place and the sheep was out of the road by 1.30pm."
Richard added: "I'm really glad the police went along to it.
"I was worried of what might happen if the sheep got onto the road."
