Hailsham rescue mission when sheep were trapped in a flooded field

Firefighters were called to a rescue after a group of sheep were trapped in a flooded field.

The sheep got stuck after the field was hit by torrential rain and they couldn’t get to safety.

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service were able to rescue some of the sheep but were unable to move all of the ewes due to deteriorating weather conditions.

A fire service spokesman said four units were involved in the incident on Thursday November 3, just off the A22 in Hailsham, where a group of nine sheep were trapped.

While two sheep were successfully rescued, the other sheep had to remain in the field as it was “too dangerous to enter”.

The sheep were again involved in a similar incident the next day, Friday 4th November, but the rescue operation was turned over to the farmer to get the animals ashore.

Several fields across Sussex have been flooded in recent days after the area was hit by three yellow weather warnings.

The floods, including in Barcombe Mills in East Sussex, have inundated many fields with torrential rainwater.
