Dramatic Rescue By Harborough Firefighters

A cow’s recovering after being trapped up to its neck in mud at the side of a Harborough field.

Firefighters spent three hours rescuing the animal after being called to the back of Rainsborough Gardens just before ten on Monday morning.

It’s thought the cow had been stuck since last night though.

A dogwalker raised the alarm after noticing the animal’s head sticking out of the mud.

Specialist equipment helped firefighters get it out of the mud and then up a steep bank where it was treated by a vet.It's expected to make a full recovery.
