Cows rescued from cellar

Cows in cellarFirefighters rescued two cows from the basement of a derelict building.

When crews arrived on scene they found the animals which appeared to have wondered into the building through an unsecure doorway.

It’s thought they had stepped on a staircase which then collapsed causing them to fall into the basement.

Working alongside a local farmer crews created a temporary staircase using straw bales.

The cows were then enticed up the stairs using animal feed and encouragement.cows rescued

A vet was in attendance but the animals appeared to be unharmed.
