RESIDENTS in an Ipswich street were UDDERLY shocked today when they opened their curtains to discover three cows roaming by.
Three adult cattle escaped from a field in Goodwood Close, near Henley Road about 9.20am and wrecked havoc in the usually quiet road.
Margaret Mudd, who witnessed events unfold, said she could hardly believe what she was seeing as the small herd made their way along the street.
The 55-year-old said: “I couldn't believe it - I thought we were having roast beef for breakfast.

“They were going among peoples' gardens and chewed a bit of grass and the tops of plants.
“All of the neighbours left them alone because if you don't know what you doing I'm sure they could knock you over.”

Mrs Mudd said a Glasswells delivery van had arrived in the Close just before 10am and the cattle had scattered.
She said they had returned to a field at the end of the Close but she was worried they could escape again as she suspected a damaged fence may have been behind their break-out.
She added: “We can pat Glasswells on the back. They seemed to corral them back.”
She said the animals had not caused any significant damage and had been fairly placid.
All three were completely black and one had horns, leading Mrs Mudd to believe it may have been a bull.
