IT ALL seemed so simple at the time when the BBC decided they’d like to recreate a sheep drive down Stratford-upon-Avon’s very own Sheep Street on Tuesday.  With Cotswold farmer and Countryfile presenter Adam Henson at the helm surely everything would go to plan, the sheep however having their own ideas.

With the Mayor of Stratford Cllr Tessa Bates looking on the BBC Countryfile production team closed Sheep Street to traffic as Adam Henson accompanied by his sheep dog chatted to camera and gathered onlookers before driving the sheep towards the Bancroft Gardens and a waiting pen.  It was then the sheep decided to go for their very own stroll in the park.
