Woolly jumpers a surprise sight

But yesterday the capital was invaded by a flock of sheep, capering their way down William Street to the bemusement of onlookers.

The bizarre parade was due to a fashion shoot by French firm Bonobo Jeans, who chose the animals to help promote their forthcoming autumn/winter collection. Ten sheep were brought from Paisley to have their moment in the spotlight, with producers admitting they chose Scotland for its autumnal look - even in May.
