One little donkey had plenty to be 'bray-ve' about last night when it fell into a sinkhole near Helston and had to be rescued by firefighters.

The creature stumbled into the two foot deep hole at Trevenen just before 7.30pm and could not get out.

Fire crews from Helston and Tolvaddon stations were called and used a harness and lines to lift the donkey to safety.

The donkey was unharmed and left in the care of its owner.
