A wandering pig got into a spot of bother in Cornwall and had to be rescued by firefighters.

Dorothy - the rather large pig - fell from her field and slipped into a river.

Dorothy became trapped in the River Fal and had no way of getting herself back onto dry land.

Firemen from Bodmin and St Austell were called to Mill Lane in Grampound to provide assistance and winch her to safety.
