Firefighters worked for an hour and a half to rescue a calf after it became stuck in a dyke.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service was called at around 3.07pm on Sunday, June 16, following reports of a cow stuck in a dyke on Christmas Lane in Oulton Broad.
Two crews and a specialist off-road Unimog vehicle from Lowestoft South were sent to rescue the animal, a one-year-old calf, and used strops and halters to hoist it from the dyke.
By around 4.31pm the calf had been rescued and was subsequently assessed by a vet and the RSPCA before being left in the hands of its owner.
