THE A1 was closed for an hour last night after five cows were trapped in a trailer.
A Jeep pulling a trailer containing five cows overturned on the sliproad just before the Carpenter’s Lodge roundabout, outside Stamford, at 5.25pm last night.
Police closed the A1 in both directions as firefighters tried to release the cows.
Crews from Stamford, Corby Glen, Grantham, Dogsthorpe and Stanground were called out to help release the trapped cows. All of the cows were uninjured and a vet was called to check them over.
They were then safely herded into another trailer by a local farmer.
The driver of the Jeep was also not injured.
