Freemen drive flock of sheep over London Bridge

A flock of sheep walked over the Thames yesterday
Nobody ever takes it seriously – you’re a freeman of the City? Doesn’t that mean you get to drive a sheep over London Bridge, ha, ha? But it really is an age-old tradition which the Worshipful Company of Woolmen is keen to maintain, and they made full use of the honour bestowed on them to walk a flock over the Thames yesterday.

Let’s hope any, ahem, debris has been cleaned up before the City workers tread in it this morning.
