Security fencing could be required in Staffordshire after a 24-year-old man has revealed how he was lucky to cheat death.

Motorist Robert Gould was driving along a road in Leek when a cow cleared a fence and collided with his car, sending him skidding for 80 yards.

Mr Gould's Citroen C5 was written off because of a dented bonnet and broken wheel, while the cow died at the scene of the crash.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Mr Gould expressed his shock about the incident and how he is lucky to be alive.

"It had hurdled a three-foot high fence and hit the front of my car. I had no time to brake and my car veered to the other side of the road," he explained.

"I was very lucky that nothing was coming in the opposite direction."

Elsewhere, security bollards could be required in a car park in Paisley after a shopper reversed into once following a supermarket trip.
