A herd of cattle caused "udder chaos" on a rural road when they escaped from their field, police said.

Suffolk Police said 85 cows had wandered more than two miles (3.2km) away from home.

It said the B1116 at Owl's Green, north of Framlingham, was closed for a short time while officers helped a local farmer to "mooooove" the animals.

A number of comments in response to the Facebook post accused the police of "milking" the story.

Using the hashtag #thegreatescape, police said: "Udder chaos in Owl's Green today as officers helped a local farmer mooooove 85 escaped cattle back into their field.
