A FLOOD of cows poured through Chard town centre at the weekend, causing a mixture of humour and confusion among the townsfolk.

At shortly after 9pm on Saturday (October 24) the herd of cattle was spotted marching down the street led by a pair of farmers.

More than 50 cows were seen paying little mind to the traffic of Chard, who came to a stop while the animals passed.

Adriana Maia's video of the moment has received more than 100 comments on social media.

She said: "It was a funny and impressive moment. We don't always see cows running around the streets in England."
