THREE fire crews were called out to rescue a cow that become stuck between two iron pillars.

Carlisle West, Aspatria and Wigton firefighters were called to a farm between Micklethwaite and Wigton at about 11.30am today.

Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "What could have been a tricky job turned out well thanks to the hard work of crews. Special thanks to the farm labourers, without whom the animal wouldn't have been rescued."
