As public disorder and rioting has spread across Britain, it was only ever going to be a matter of time before an outbreak reached the sleepy Welsh valleys. However, this time the locals were ready and waiting.
The folk of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch were quick to respond when a dozen sheep broke out of Farmer Evans' field and charged down the road towards the market square, intent on bringing mayhem to the otherwise sleepy town.
In the blink of an eye, local men put down their pints and emptied the Parc-Y-Prior Inn. Throwing a cordon across the street, they stood proud, armed with nothing but the wellington boots they were wearing.
As the sheep menacingly approached , the men loosened their belts and dropped their trousers, striking fear and terror into the hearts of the sheep, for whom this was an all too familiar sight.
The sheep promptly performed an about turn and headed back to the relative safety of their field, where Farmer Evans quickly secured the gate.
A local man told us, "Chymerwn na cacha , mo hyd yn oed chan dafad".
