A number of cows have been causing chaos on a major road in Suffolk, near to RAF Lakenheath.

The cows ventured on to the A1065 road at the Royal Air Force station's viewing area, resulting in "heavy traffic congestion", according to Mildenhall Police.

Officers appealed on Twitter for anyone who knew the owner of the cows to get in touch.

About 20 minutes after the first tweet, police said the cows had returned to their field.

RAF Lakenheath is the largest US Air Force-operated base in England and the US Air Force's only F-15 fighter wing in Europe. 

There are 11 bases in use by US Visiting Forces across the UK.
