A bull is still running loose in Skellingthorpe and Ferry Lane remains blocked.

Police are at the scene on Ferry Lane where a bull has been on the loose for over four hours. It is being described by police as a “danger to members of the public”.

It is advised by police to avoid the area and the surrounding fields/footpaths until further notice.

Police are on the far side of the fossdyke. A firearms officer is searching the other side of the canal, according to BBC reporter Jake Zuckerman.
