Incredible footage shows hundreds of sheep invading a Turkish city during the coronavirus lockdown.

The video, which has been shared on social media, shows a huge flock of sheep passing through the coastal town of Samsun.

Ragip Soylu, a reporter for Middle East Eye posted the video on Twitter, which shows the farm animals quickly making their way through empty streets, with some taking a rest on the grass.

Mr Soylu tweeted: “Flock of sheep invades Turkey’s city of Samsun last night during the coronavirus lockdown.”

There were similar scenes closer to home in March, when a group of goats took over a Welsh town.

A herd of goats were spotted running wild in the seaside town of Llandudno in north Wales.

The naughty animals were first spotted on March 27, outside a pub near Trinity Square, where they began eating hedges.

Video journalist Andrew Stuart filmed their antics and ended up calling the police to let them know of the amusing goings on outside his window.

And despite being chased by a police car in the middle of the night, the goats were still taking over the town.

Meanwhile, the number of people who have died from Covid-19 in Turkey rose by 61 on Sunday, taking the total to 3,397.

The overall number of cases rose by 1,670 to 126,045, which is the highest total outside Western Europe, the United States and Russia.

Turkey recently extended the shutdown of its schools until the end of May amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Education minister Ziya Selcuk said that the remote schooling system through television broadcasts and the internet would continue until May 31.

Turkey closed down schools across the country on March 12, a day after it reported its first confirmed Covid-19 infection.

Elsewhere, Turkey has plans to introduce a certificate for Brits to prove they don’t have coronavirus in order to be allowed to visit.

Turkey’s Culture and Tourism Minister Mehmet Nuri Ersoy said the normalisation phase in Turkey could begin as early as the second week of May.

He told local media that holidaymakers will need an official document detailing their health status while new measures are also to be introduced across the tourism industry.

The certification system will include three pillars covering transportation, facilities and passengers who use the previous two pillars.

He explained an immunity certificate would also be required of international visitors.

“This will probably be an example to the world that we have developed. By gradually including all NGOs in the commission, we aim to finalise this certification system quickly in the first week of May,” Ersoy said.
