POLICE have been out herding sheep near Malvern this morning.

A picture posted on social media by @MalvernCops shows two sheep walking on the road at Coombe Green.

A spokesperson called the work "rural policing at its finest".

They said: "Rural policing at its finest. The first job of the day was herding some sheep back onto the Common Land in Coombe Green.

"Like a lamb to the slaughter, they tried to pull the wool over our eyes and hide on a dangerous blind bend."
