Two calves died and a third was rescued after the small animals fell into a slurry tank at a farm on Rocktown Road in Carrickmore on Tuesday morning.

Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service dispatched specialist animal rescue teams just after 9am on February 7, where they "used a gas monitor, slings, a grap pole and a telehandler to remove two dead calves and one live one from the slurry tank".

Specialist animal rescue teams and firefighters were called to the incident from Dungannon, Cookstown and Omagh stations.
