Fire crews rescued a cow which was stuck on Terrington Marsh on Tuesday.

Officers from Lynn and Terrington, who were called to the incident at about 3.40pm, spent almost three hours on the scene to free the animal from the creek.

They said: "With high tide imminent the crews the crews worked extremely hard to get it out of the creek, it took nearly three hours.

"Thanks also must go to the farmer who assisted with his quad bike in taking all the equipment across the marsh.
