Sheep spotted playing in deserted children’s playground as they spin each other around on roundabout during lockdown – The Sun

The sheep are usually kept away from the kids' play area at Raglan Farm Park in Monmouthshire, Wales, but have been allowed to roam free because of the coronavirus crisis.

Park owner Gareth Williams said he was ''shocked'' when the sheep started spinning on the roundabout.

He said: "I was quite shocked when I saw them on the roundabout, we don't usually have them down here so it was quite amazing to see.

"Some of them were playing and others were all around the park. I was really surprised at how quickly they've started to play and get the hang of it.

"They're not usually here when the park is open."

Despite the park currently being closed due to Coronavirus, Gareth, 42, is being kept busy with lambing season.

"We've lambed 200 sheep and there are only ten left to lamb — the rest are now outside making the most of the good weather."

While the farm itself is closed, the farm shop is open for people to buy food and produce from the farm which Gareth says is busier than ever.

It comes after a herd of goats took over a deserted town sparking a cop callout as officers tried to remove the animals.

The 12-strong group was spotted on Friday evening running around Llandudno, North Wales, as locals obeying curfew laws.
