A delivery driver has spoken of his surprise after seeing a flock of sheep wandering in a residential area.

Ismail Nakhuda, 67, has been working throughout the pandemic delivering medicines for two local pharmacies.

On Friday, when he was delivering medicines in Threefields, Ingol, Preston he came across the flock of sheep.

Ismail said: “I deliver medicines every day and go to Ingol regularly and it’s the first time I’ve seen a flock of sheep grazing in a residential area!

“It’s not something you expect to see and all the residents were out looking at the sheep in amazement.

“The lady I delivered medicine to said that the police were coming. I do hope the sheep found their way back home safely.” 

Ismail has his own YouTube channel where he has 4.5k subscribers.
