Nanny knows no bounds when it comes to ensuring that the health and safety of her subjects are protected, even when they are sheep.
As such it should come as no surprise to learn that when a sheep became trapped, and needed rescue, Nanny dispatched 40 of her finest firefighters to help the animal.
Emergency services received a 999 call when the animal got trapped on a ledge above a flooded quarry in Bacup, Lancashire.
Seven fire crews duly turned up and took part in a 2 hour operation, involving a team using wetsuits and an inflatable boat.
A fire service spokesman said:
"Incidents near water have health and safety issues.
The numbers sent weren't there to ensure the sheep was rescued
but that no firefighters were injured."
Don't you think that Nanny should be feeling a little sheepish by now?
