Burnley Express receptionist Noreen Exton could be forgiven for thinking she’d gone baa-my when she awoke one morning to find six sheep on her front lawn.

Surprised Noreen (63) even rubbed the sleep from her eyes but the sheep were still there – happily grazing on her lawn in Tiverton Drive, Briercliffe.

“I opened the blinds and saw these six sheep staring at me. They must have been content because they then sat down! They must have escaped from a nearby farm.”
