Man describes buffalo car stampede on Derbyshire road


A security manager has described what it was like to have his car attacked by buffalo on his way home from work in Derbyshire.

Jon Maccoll had finished a shift in the early hours of the morning and was travelling from Darley Dale to Chesterfield when he saw five of the animals coming towards him.

He swerved to avoid the buffalo, which had run into the road after escaping from a specialist meat farm, but one of them charged directly towards Mr Maccoll's Ford Fiesta.

Mr Maccoll described the attack on BBC Radio Derby.
