School pupils' panic after being surrounded by cows during expedition
TEENAGE girls on a school expedition alerted the emergency services when they became surrounded by a herd of cows and bulls in a field near Compton Dando.
The group of six girls, aged between 14 and 16 and from Mangotsfield School, became worried about their safety when they were confronted by the animals in a field off Bathford Hill.
They were visiting the area as part of a Duke of Edinburgh Awards practice expedition.
The girls dialled 999 when they were unable to contact their school teachers as they had no mobile phone signal.
