Cow rescued by firefighters

Kenn Moor Road, Yatton

A cow has been rescued from a rhyne by firefighters.

Assisted by the AF&RS boat, two firefighters, who are also swift water rescue technicians, donned dry suits and entered the water, where they helped the cow to the bank.

Firefighters on the bank then used throw lines to pull the animal out of the water. It was then seen running around the field, none the worse for its ordeal.
