A WYFRS spokesperson said: "Technical Rescue Officer Damian Cameron attended the call out after receiving reports of sheep on a roof on Barnsley Road in Newmillerdam, Wakefield, at 19:42 on Tuesday.

"One sheep had leapt across a gap between a field and the roof and other sheep followed.

"No specialist equipment was required. Officer Cameron, with the help of a local landowner, built a makeshift timber bridge between the property and the neighbouring field to eventually entice the sheep back to safety."
