Gizmo the Essex 'near-death' foal finds its feet

An abandoned foal found emaciated on an Essex roadside has finally been able to stand up by himself and run around his vet's field, after weeks of physiotherapy.

Gizmo was found in a "near-death state" in Yeldham Road, Halstead, Essex on 17 February.

For weeks he had to be winched up while staff nursed him back to health.

Vet Carolyn Wyse said Gizmo was now "80% fit" and described his recovery as "miraculous".
