FIREFIGHTERS were called to Higham today to help free a young bull which had its head stuck in a tree.

The bull’s legs had also become entangled in barbed wire at Little Grange Farm in Hadleigh Road about 9.30am today.

The animal had put its head in the fork of a tree but because it was entangled in wire could not pull itself out again.

A fire crew from Hadleigh used bolt croppers to free the animal and it was released by 11am.
