Firefighters and an animal rescue team used a 4x4 vehicle to pull stranded cow stuck in a river.

The cow fell into difficulties in the South Forty Foot Drain at Swaton Fen, close to the A52, just after 3pm on Saturday.

Fire crews from Billingborough joined specialist animal rescuers in the operation after the cow became stuck in the water course.

They used man power and a four wheel-drive vehicle to pull it out, unharmed.
