Firefighters have rescued a 30-stone pig from a Rotherham flat where she lived on Chinese takeaways. The two-year-old pig had slept on a mattress, was toilet trained to use a litter tray, and fed on Asian home delivery as well as chocolate and porridge. After her owner passed away, the pig was sedated and carried out of the flat. She now lives at Peppers Field Equine & Poultry Rehabilitation Centre in Letwell.
