A weekly round-up of rural rumpuses
Saturday 19 August 1995
Farmers near Bradford were warned to get a grip on their sheep. The animals have been wandering on to the roads near Baildon Moor, and a driver narrowly escaped injury recently when he collided with a wandering sheep, which later died. Householders near the moor complain that this is just one in a string of incidents and that the farmers allow their sheep to run free, invading gardens and chewing up plants. They say the root of the problem is Bradford council's refusal to install two cattle grids to keep the sheep safely on the moor, and they are considering legal action.
A row that broke after housing developers built a home over an ancient right of way has been temporarily settled. The solution? The developers will leave open the front and back doors of the semi-detached property at Bitham Park, Westbury, Wiltshire, so that walkers can stomp straight through.
