A herd of 17 goats held up commuters travelling through the Catalan city of Terrassa as they marched through the station.

Station officials led the animal intruders from the train platform, up the station steps and out the exit after nightfall when train services were less frequent.

Some of them ended up spending eight or nine hours in the station, keeping members of staff company throughout the day.
