A COW is moo-ving once again after getting its head stuck in a fence.

Officers from Essex Police’s rural engagement team came across the trapped cow earlier today.

The team was grateful for their recent training with Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, which taught the officers how to rescue large animals.
