A Pair Of Clumsy Calves Had To Be Rescued By Firefighters After Falling Into A Disused Sewer

A pair of clumsy calves had to be rescued by firefighters after they got trapped underground after falling into a disused sewer.

The youngsters thankfully only suffered grazes after they fell through the brickwork and plunged into the five foot deep hole.

Kent Fire and Rescue Service were called out at around 1.20pm yesterday (Sun) and had to make a pulley system with ropes and a tractor to winch the heavy calves out of the hole.

It is believed the tunnel is part of an old drainage system and was caused by a cover giving way on the farm, in Linton, near Maidstone.

The hole was widened to make room for a mechanical hoist to be lowered in and the calves were lifted out one by one.

By 3.30pm the calves had been freed and were returned safely to their field.

A spokesman for Kent Fire and Rescue Service joked: “They had only minor grazes and were udderly thrilled to be reunited with their mother, who looked on throughout the rescue.

“She was over the moon to have them back.”
