Pigs saved by firefighters served up as sausages by grateful farmer

A litter of piglets rescued from a barn fire have been turned into sausages and given to the firefighters who tackled the blaze.

The 18 piglets and two sows survived the fire in Wiltshire in February, which saw 60 tonnes of hay catch fire.

In a controversial move, farm manager Rachel Rivers thanked the Pewsey fire team by giving them sausages.

According to a report by the BBC, the firefighters initially said the bangers were “fantastic” but following complaints from vegetarians have since said sorry.
