One person injured in RTC as loose bull is shot dead

One person has been injured in a road traffic involving a bull on the M1 last night (Friday).

The animal escaped from a trailer after the driver of the vehicle towing it crashed. He was not seriously injured.

Police managed to get the bull over to one side of the road, but could not get it back into the trailer as it was too agitated.

It was shot dead because it was a danger to other motorists.

The westbound lane of M1 was closed between the Lurgan junction and the M12 junction.

According to police a bull being transported on the vehicle involved got loose on the road when officers arrived at the scene.

The M1 westbound has since reopened.
