All's sheep shape as Mary Berry goes for a drive over bridge

By Sam Gelder

Mary Berry swapped her spatula for a shepherd's crook to lead 20 sheep across London Bridge yesterday morning.

The TV chef kicked off the annual Great Sheep Drive, which sees some 600 of London's Freemen of the City exercise their ancient right to drive the animals over the bridge.

Berry, who was herself made a Freeman in 2014, was joined by family members for the event, which raises thousands of pounds for the Lord Mayor's Appeal.

Despite some sheep choosing to go on ahead as she posed for photos, the former Great British Bake Off queen said it went "like clockwork. They were exceedingly well-behaved". She added: "I think they've done it before."
