Traffic was brought to a halt on the motorway after a herd of COWS decided to take a stroll down the M62.
Christmas shoppers travelling to Leeds on the M62 on Saturday  afternoon were stopped in their tracks by the animals.
An amusing clip filmed by motorist Jay McBride, 46, shows at least 10 cows strolling down the deserted motorway after leaping the barrier just before Junction 31.
One cow can be seen attempting to jump the barrier to join the travelling herd before a man in a high visibility jacket is spotted struggling to herd the cows off the road.
Motorists were treated to the amusing sight of the cows causing chaos as they were forced to wait almost an hour for the animals to evacuate the motorway.
