They’re the woolly wanderers whose unlikely roundabout invasion stopped motorists in their tracks.
As reported in yesterday’s YEP, the sheep sparked traffic chaos when they invaded the roundabout near Ikea on Saturday.
And today their drama came to a heartwarming conclusion in the shape of some new arrivals to the adventurous flock.
Farmer William Warren was as surprised as anyone to be told that 32 of his sheep were grazing on the roundabout at Birstall Retail Park.
William, 23, whose family have farmed in Gomersal for over 200 years, said the sheep escaped after poachers cut a hole in their field’s fence.
The flock embarked on a mile-long journey braving the M62.
Some of the sheep, who were due to lamb next month, were so traumatised by their ordeal that they gave birth to two offspring yesterday.
William said: “We got a phone call from a farm in Tingley to say that there were some sheep on the roundabout.
“They must have gone at least a mile and were spotted on the slip road of the motorway.
“They got into the middle of the roundabout and were just grazing away.
“Wherever one sheep goes the rest of them will follow.
“We were lucky not to lose any.”
William helped to herd the flock into his wagon with the help of shepherd Carlton Ives and gamekeeper Oliver Simpson.
The flock are now safely penned inside their farmhouse on Church Lane.
