FIREFIGHTERS rescued a bullock that was stuck in a water-filled ditch 'for some time'.

A crew from Bridgwater was called to help a farmer at Greylake Bridge, on the King Sedgemoor Drain near Westonzoyland, at around 1.30pm yesterday afternoon (Sunday).

A spokesperson for the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said: "Personnel worked alongside the farmer and were eventually able to get a head restraint on the animal, thus allowing them to walk it to safety and out of the water."

The bullock was unharmed and left in the care of the farmer.
