Five Sheep Have Been Rescued Off Yorkshire Roof

Five Sheep Have Been Rescued Off Yorkshire Roof

After leaping across a gap from a neighbouring field, five sheep had to be rescued from a rooftop in West Yorkshire. On Tuesday, firefighters were dispatched to Barnsley Road in Newmillerdam, near Wakefield, when the animals became stranded.

Mr Cameron, a technical rescue officer, and a nearby farmer built a makeshift bridge to assist the sheep in getting to safety. According to West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, one woolly jumper plunged into the void, followed by the others.
