A farmer has sent out a warning to drivers after a herd of cattle escaped near a busy main road more than two weeks ago.
Fourteen of the 70 animals, which were let loose from their field at Caston more than two weeks ago, were still at large on Wednesday. Some have been spotted in the vicinity of Wayland Wood and others at Caston Road, Carbrooke - but have defied all attempts to recapture them.
Bridgett Hall, of Church Farm, Caston, urged motorists to be on their guard.
The eight to ten-month-old Simmental cross Hereford cows made their break for freedom on the night of June 7 after someone opened the gate to their field.

Mrs Hall said the police and highways authority had been alerted and makeshift signs had been placed on the A1075 to warn drivers.
“We are trying to get the cattle back, but the wilder they get the harder it is to get near them. We are concerned that they are getting near the road and the safety of the public is our main priority at the moment,” she said.
