In Glasgow, a bull that escaped from a field caused a traffic jam on Scotland’s busiest motorway. On October 21, the bull, identified as “Lover Boy”, managed to approach the M8 near Junction 30 in Craigton. Road police authorities were dispatched to the scene near Glasgow Airport, but despite the name tag they were unable to get ‘Lover Boy’ to move.
Road Police Scotland has warned motorists on the M8 motorway could be delayed after a bull roamed in traffic.
