Two young Dereham golfers became Good Samaritans when they rescued a sheep in distress.
Siblings Immy, 20, and Arthur Leeder, 10, were keeping up their fitness during lockdown by cycling when they spotted the animal.
The ewe was struggling to give birth to a lamb in a pasture near Beeston Church.

The siblings came to the rescue and raised the alarm.
Their mother, Isabelle Leeder said: “As well as being avid animal fans and country lovers they both play county level golf and are both members at Dereham Golf Club.
“They have hoped all spring to be able to help the farmer with a lambing but never dreamt that they would have the chance to deliver a lamb themselves - and save a ewe and her baby by their actions.”
The farmer Rob Wall said that if they had not acted he could have lost the lamb.
