Firefighters on the Isle of Man have rescued a dairy cow that had become trapped in a trailer near Ramsey.

The incident happened at Glen Tramman just after 12:30 GMT on Christmas Eve.

A specialist animal rescue team and a rescue crew from Ramsey managed to free the unfortunate bovine, stuck in a small gap in the side of the trailer, using hydraulic cutting equipment.

The fire service said the cow "walked away without injury" from its ordeal at Glen Tramman on the Lezayre Road.
