A horse which became stuck in a horse box in Dorset had to be sedated by a vet while firefighters cut it free.

Dorset Fire and Rescue Service said the animal became wedged in a partition in the trailer in West Milton, near Bridport.

Firefighters from Bridport were called at 1700 GMT on Wednesday along with the animal rescue team and the special rescue team from Poole.

The crews had to cut away part of the box to release the animal.
