Highways England have temporarily closed one lane of traffic on the A38 southbound – between the junctions with the A610 and the A61 Derby as traffic officers make their way to the scene.

The animals are expected to be cleared between 11.15am and 11.30am this morning (Saturday, June 5).

Traffic appears to be currently coping well.
