FIREFIGHTERS from Bridgwater were called to help rescue a cow which had fallen into a swimming pool.

The alarm was raised at 9.30pm on Saturday (April 12) when the cow was discovered in a pool at Gurney Slade.

A fire appliance from Shepton Mallet was mobilised and the specialist rescue team from Bridgwater was called to attend.

Crews confirmed one cow was in the swimming pool and was not distressed.

Crews waited for the local vet to attend to sedate the cow before crews released the cow from the pool unharmed.
