CENTRAL LONDON has hit by an unusual traffic jam – accompanied not by the beeping of horns, but the bleating of sheep.Crowds of passers-by flocked to see the unusual spectacle as 20 Suffolk and Texel sheep were herded across London Bridge. The woolly creatures took a trip over the Thames as the Lord Mayor of the City of London exercised his ancient right to drive them across.

Traffic was redirected as Liverymen and Freemen of the City walked the animals across. The event was organised by the Worshipful Company of Woolmen, one of 109 Liveries in the capital, to raise money for the Lord Mayor’s appeal and the company’s own charitable trust.
