    Pupils at Chandlings School in Oxford are celebrating after finding a new home for an escaped ram.

    The animal, who the children have named Reg, was on a farmer's lorry headed for slaughter when he made his bid for freedom and ended up at the gates of the school where he was discovered by grounds manager Rob Maskrey.

    Emma Finneron, one of the pupil's mothers, said she was asked by the school to help find a permanent home for Reg.

    She said: "I started to ring around but farming sanctuaries are quite full. Eventually we managed to find one in Kidderminster - the Goodheart Animal Sanctuary - they still had room, thank goodness!"
