National Trust volunteers clean up Litlington White Horse

Six tonnes of chalk have been spread over the Litlington White Horse carved high up on the South Downs in Sussex.

National Trust volunteers have weeded the figure and replenished the chalk to keep its bright white appearance.

The horse was carved by four men in 1836 and then re-carved in 1924 by a grandson of one of the original group, according to the National Trust.
