A TRAVEL Agent has appointed a new mascot - a cow which fell into the family swimming pool.

A TRAVEL Agent has appointed a new mascot - a cow which fell into the family swimming pool.

Eight of the bovine beasts wandered into Ruth Scott's garden in Milton Keynes yesterday before one stumbled into the pool and began to swim in the deep end.

The fire brigade and farmer who owns the cows were both called in and the animal was eventually rescued.

It was checked over and given a clean bill of health by the RSPCA.

Mrs Scott, who runs the family travel company from home, said they had christened the unfortunate cow Scott Travel Daisy and made it the firm's mascot.
