This was not an a-moo-sing situation for a lost Somerset cow.

Fire crews found the animal stuck in a muddy watery ditch alone in the Gordano Valley yesterday afternoon (April 22).

It took three crews from Bedminster, Portishead and Bath around 2 hours using a strop, a long rope, to get the cow to safety.

Luckily Daisy the cow, as nicknamed by the firefighters, was able to join the rest of her herd unharmed, if a little embarrassed.
