A cow was involved in a dramatic rescue in West Yorkshire- after it fell down a sink hole.

Firefighters from a technical rescue unit laboured to dig a hole around the frightened beast who got its back leg stuck during the incident on Thursday.

They used a cow lifting sling to lift the cow out of the hole. Officers say it was "unharmed but a bit distressed".
