Drivers got stuck on the M62 after sheep ran across the motorway this morning.
Police had to close both sides of the carriageway after the four-legged rebels caused chaos.
The escapees appeared on the motorway between junction 21 at Milnrow and junction 22 at Rishworth Moor.
Police put a rolling roadblock in place at around 10.30am to to allow the farmer to herd his sheep off the carriageway, much to the amusement of drivers.
Joel Coleman tweeted: “Stuck on the M62, sheep are running everywhere, the shepherd and his dog are chasing them!”
The sheep were safely removed and both sides of the carriageway reopened by 11am.
