The two people – in wetsuits and flotation devices – struggled to get the stricken duo back to shore.

Stranraer Lifeboat said in a statement: “Stranraer retrieved the two people from the water to the safety of the lifeboat and then assisted in the rescue of the two cattle, which were safely brought back to shore.”

“The coast guards from Portpatrick, Stranraer and Drummore and Ballantrae were also present.

“The lifeboat returned to the station and was made operational at 3:05 p.m.”
