Pictured: Herd of cows take stroll through Northern Ireland housing estate

Never a dull moment, said the police officer.

This was the unusual sight that greeted police after a herd of cows took a stroll around a Ballymena housing estate on Wednesday morning.

"You never quite know what your next call could be on a night shift could it be an assault, youths causing annoyance or maybe even some cows out for a walk," said police in a Facebook post.

"Yes tonight we had a stroll around Dunvale herding about 12 cows that had escaped from a field on the Doury Road. Thankfully the farmer wasn't far away and came down to sort them out."
