It was a distress call with a difference for a Sergeant in Fermanagh.

On Sunday while on patrol in the Florencecourt area of he "literally" got his hands dirty.

Posting on the PSNI Fermanagh page officers revealed how the eagle-eyed constable spotted a cow giving birth in a field close to the road.

An officer said: "Our Sergeant, never leaving a female in distress, jumped out to the cow's aid and helped deliver the calf."

The officers then challenged the public that if the post got 100 likes they would put up photographic evidence. And it seemed the public were very keen to see proof - as more than 1,500 people liked it.
