Red Arrows Cause Cattle StampedeIt would appear that the fabulous Red Arrows display which thousands of people along the east and south coast of the Wight came out to watch on Sunday, wasn’t appreciated by everyone.

Spectators on Culver Down were met with a stampede of cattle, who had apparently been frightened by the jets passing overhead and set off on a rampage – causing damage to several cars on the downs.

It’s not thought to have been a problem before, and thankfully no-one was hurt (including the cows).

Perhaps they were just trying to get a better view!
