Thousands of motorists had to wait for an hour as cops and Highways Agency attempted to herd the pigs which had escaped from a farmer’s field.

National Highways tweeted: “@Animals in Road Warning sign “#M62 westbound #J12 (#EcclesInterchange #M60 #M602) to #J11 (#WarringtonEast #Birchwood #A574) traffic has been temporarily stopped due to a number of pigs which are being a bit of a swine and won’t move.”

They later added: “Our pig whisperers are still working hard at scene.
We’ve now safely returned them to their nearby field and aim to let the traffic go very soon.”

One Twitter user replied: “Glad you included photographic proof otherwise we’d think you were telling porkies.”
