‘A full-scale rescue operation was launched after seven college students on a night-time orienteering trek became worried by a herd of cows.
Emergency services were called out on Monday night after the teenagers became stuck on a hill near Swanage, Dorset. [..]
They were given mobile phones and emergency numbers in case they got into difficulty.
They contacted the centre when they came across the field of cows and coastguard, police and ambulance crews were sent to the scene, a Hertfordshire County Council spokeswoman said.
“They got to the field and realised they needed to be on the other side of it and did not want to go through it,” she explained.’
