Christmas jumpers - in varying degrees of tastelessness - have become fashionable festive wear but a charity based near Bath has come up with what it believes is the first to be worn by a cow.
Gloria, the mascot of Send a Cow, has had a jersey knitted for her (with natty Velcro straps) to highlight the charity's alternative gift catalogue. People are invited to come up with presents that can change the lives of families in Africa.

The result is it may not feel like 12 degrees in the afternoon. Nevertheless thats still a decent high in late November. Just the chance of something resembling brightness in East Wiltshire.
