Rescue for walkers spooked by cows
A couple out walking were rescued by police after taking refuge in a river to escape a herd of cows and bulls.
North Yorkshire Police said yesterday that the couple were panicked by the herd and waded into the River Swale near Asenby, Thirsk, at about 5pm on Sunday. They held on to a branch in the river and police officers who went to the scene rescued the couple, who were uninjured. Fire crews arrived after the couple had been taken out of the water.
