Getting ready for a cowboy approach to rescuing a cow which fell from a field into the river near Keld Avenue, Uckfield.

Cow’s adventure in river near Keld Avenue, Uckfield

There was excitement in Keld Avenue, Uckfield, yesterday evening when a cow from the field opposite fell into the river, writes Nikki Venus.

Eventually after eating the grass that is greener on the other side and a bit of a swim it climbed out by itself despite the fire crew being on hand.

Nikki shared the story and pictures on the Uckfield News Facebook page and we are pleased to post them here too.

Great pictures, thank you Nikki.

The cow eventually made its own way out of the river while the fire service stood by ready to help if necessary.
