Pictures show dramatic moment firefighters rescue 29-year-old horse from ditch
Firefighters have released photographs of the dramatic moment they rescued a 29-year-old horse which had fallen into a ditch. The horse became trapped in Ashby-cum-Fenby on Sunday, July 26 and 15 firefighters were drafted in to help the animal. A team from Humberside Fire and Rescue spent almost three hours working at the scene after they received a call that the horse was in distress and needed rescuing just after 2pm.
The horse was in such a precarious situation that it had to be sedated before firefighters climbed into the ditch and dug out of the mud using shovels.
The animal was dragged up the steep, muddy bank using lifting equipment and straps attached to a JCB and a forklift truck that was on site.

The horse was later pictured in its stable surrounded by mounds of comfortable hay and is believed to be on the mend after its ordeal, the spokesman added.
