Delays on A9 after road closed for police cow chase

A dual carriageway had to be closed at rush hour while police attempted to catch a cow which was loose on the road.

The animal was spotted on the A9 near Dunblane at about 09:30.

The road was closed between the town and the A820 Doune junction while officers chased the beast.

The cow was caught and returned to its field allowing the road to re-open after 20 minutes, although half-hour queues built up in both directions.
