Firefighters have rescued a cow from a sink hole.

A specialist technical rescue team had to be mobilised after the animal got stuck in a field at Birks Close Farm in Norwood Green.

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said on Facebook: "Our Technical Rescue and Cleckheaton crew had to help re-moove a cow that had gotten itself in an inescapabull position stuck in a sink hole!"

Crews and the farmer managed to dig a hole around the trapped cow and once the hole was big enough to free it and its stuck back leg they used used a lifting sling to lift the animal out unharmed.

A social media user responded to the Facebook post saying: "Good work everyone. Heroes without a cape. I can see why my son wants to be just like you one day."
