Hunt continues for escaped heifer
Darlington Cattle Market
The animals escaped while being unloaded at the market
A town remains on alert, 24 hours after two heifers escaped from a cattle market, sparking the deployment of police marksmen.

Armed officers shot dead one animal in a quiet cul-de-sac in Darlington, after the animals fled a trailer being unloaded at the town's weekly market.

But the second remains on the loose and police have renewed warnings that the half-ton animal is extremely dangerous.

Durham Police said the animal may be sheltering with a domestic herd.
