A YOUNG cow needed to be rescued after falling into a ditch.

Firefighters from Havant and Petersfield went to help the farm animal at Longmoor, north of Petersfield.

An animal rescue officer was also called to help the cow at about 10am yesterday.

The manpower of seven men was needed to move the cow, with the help of ropes which were tied round the animal. Firefighters were stood down at about midday and the creature returned to the farmer.
