A calf who became stranded on a Cornish beach on Thursday night ended up being rescued in a lifeboat.

The RSPCA was alerted to the calf at St Mawes by a caller and an officer from the animal charity arrived with the Falmouth lifeboat crew.

The animal had managed to get through broken fencing and fall down a steep embankment and become stranded as the tide came in.

Jo Barr from the RSPCA said the calf was "very shocked and scared but ok".
