A LARGE bull with a bucket stuck on its head caused traffic chaos yesterday after it wandered on to a busy South Ayrshire road.

Frustrated motorists were left waiting in lengthy tailbacks after the animal escaped from a nearby field and ran on to the A77 Ballantrae to Girvan Road.

It had a feeding tray stuck on its head and was visibly very distressed as it struggled to get it off.

Police were alerted to reports that the bull had wandered on to the busy road at around 3.30pm.

The incident caused tailbacks for about 45 minutes until the farmer who owned the animal was able to return it to the field.

The feeding tray was removed from the bull's head.
