Film to chart 'demise' of heavy horses on the Fens

Film makers are turning the clock back at a Suffolk farm to tell the story of heavy horses being put to work.

The Horseman's Word is being filmed at a farm in Stoke by Nayland and aims to chart 200 years of the animals working on the Fens.

Actor Mike Rouse said: "We must try and tell these stories otherwise they'll be lost forever."

BBC Look East's Kevin Burch reports.
