"The cows are channelling their Trump tendencies"

... says Graeme* in the comments, with a link to The Telegraph:

Travelers on the London-to-Uckfield train line were probably not that surprised to hear their service faced delays on Saturday afternoon.

However, while delays on Southern rail are far from unusual, the reason this time was at least a novel one – a herd of cows had invaded the platform at Hever station. Student Francesca Ryan took a picture of the animals – one of which had fallen off the platform onto the track

Southern issued a statement saying:

“A herd of cows (up to 60) are [sic] on the line between Hever and Ashurst. Network Rail response staff are on site trying to herd the cows back onto the land they escaped from. There is currently no service between Oxted and Uckfield.”

* It only seems fair to link back to his blog in return. Via his Blogger profile and a few clicks later I ended up at Not sure if I took a wrong turn on the internet or something.

It seems strange that I apparently own a blog that I have never visited or contributed to! The wonders of the Internet sometimes have to be experienced to be believed
