Major delays on M62 as farmer shepherds two sheep off carriageway
A farmer used a sheepdog to retrieve the sheep from the westbound carriageway - causing a backlog of traffic.
Highways officers described the moment as 'outstanding shepherding' from the farmer and 'trusty sheepdog'.
The incident stopped traffic from J24 for Huddersfield to J22 for Outlane this morning.
"Some outstanding shepherding from a local farmer to clear two sheep from the carriageway.
