A cow that had got stuck on a bridge was rescued by Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service this morning.
One rescue vehicle, one specialist Unimog and one fire engine attended the incident in Stowmarket Road, Wetherden, which was called in at 8.36am.
The cow had its hind legs trapped in parts of the bridge.
Working with a vet and staff from a nearby farm, the cow was sedated, and used airbags and strops to help release the cow.
Once released, the crews assisted the farm staff in safely returning the cow to a nearby field.
After all the equipment had been collected, all crews returned to base and the incident was closed at 11.07am.
