"Fifty of 'em"

Says James Higham who spotted this in The Telegraph:

A herd of 50 cows ran riot through suburban streets after escaping from a nearby farm.

The animals stampeded down roads in Trafford, Greater Manchester, to the astonishment of residents...


With great embedded video.

I've just emailed Mark about this but interested to know if anyone else is experiencing slow page load times for this website? (Perhaps I ought to have canvassed before 'helpfully' emailing Mark)

I've found the page to load really slowly, it taking over a minute before the 'spinning circle' stops to indicate the page has fully loaded. This is due, as far as I can tell, to an attempt to load a 'Facebook share' button for each article, and which (no longer) exists.

Will be interesting to hear if others are experiencing the issue? After all, if it's only me then Mark can just ignore my recent email.

Thanks.

I read the headline and thought it was about the local branch of the Diane Abbott Appreciation Society having been at the prosecco again!

TCO, I deleted the old bit of html that related to FB from the template, can you tell me if it's any better?

I think, on this evidence, that people who feel threatened by cows should keep a beaver close by:
