FIREFIGHTERS were called to St Martins on Thursday afternoon to rescue a cow from water.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service were called to New Marton Locks at 12.04pm, with reports of a cow being stuck in the canal.

A crew from Oswestry was sent to the incident along with an operations officer.

Their help was not needed however, as the cow had rescued itself from the water by the time they arrived.
