A lamb has been rescued after falling 10ft into a muddy well in her field in Lincolnshire.

The RSPCA was called by a walker who could not reach far enough into the well.

The passer-by said they heard the lamb desperately bleating for her mum in the deep, stone well in the middle of a field off Green Lane, Woodhall Spa.

Inspector Deborah Scotcher went to the scene to help the baby, on Saturday (15 April).

The poor little thing was rather muddy and wet but, thankfully, despite a 10ft fall, didn’t seem injured.

Luckily, the lamb was standing and was alert when I arrived and, despite being a little mucky, she was in good condition and wasn’t too worse for wear.

I managed to get her out by stepping down onto a ledge within the well shaft and reached down to scoop her up.

I gave her a quick check over and she didn’t have any injuries and was desperate to get back to her mum so I let her run back to the flock.
