A nurse is recovering in hospital after being trampled by a herd of cows during a treasure hunt.

Sarah Leonard, aged 59, of Norton, was walking with her dog when a dozen cows trampled her – breaking her arms, collarbone, jaw and ribs.

She rang 999 but did not know her exact location so it took paramedics 30 minutes to find her in the field in North Scarle, Lincolnshire.

Sarah was ‘geocaching’ – a high-tech treasure hunt using GPS.

Her brother Andrew Leonard, 62, said: “She is very slowly on the mend.”
