It was a case of all in a day’s work for one Co Fermanagh police sergeant after he went to the aid of a ‘damsel in distress’ and helped with a special delivery at the weekend.
When a passing patrol spotted a cow giving birth in a field close to the road the sergeant decided it was time to get his hands dirty.
The PSNI in Fermanagh, in a facebook post, said it had certainly proved to be an interesting day for the sergeant.
The post added: “While on patrol in the Florencecourt area he actually got his hands dirty. I mean this literally. There was a cow who was giving birth in a field close to the road.
“The eagle eyed constable with the Sergeant spotted it and pointed it out.
“Our Sergeant, never leaving a female in distress, jumped out to the cow’s aid and helped deliver the calf.
“Think it was a great job done and something the sergeant won’t forget in a hurry!”
The PSNI later posted some photographic evidence of this unusual event.
