Horse hurt in Lower Broadheath stable block fire

A horse suffered singeing to its back in a fire at a wooden stable block attached to a Worcestershire cottage.

Two other horses were moved to safety, to a neighbour's field, as a result of the incident in Lower Broadheath on Saturday afternoon.

The fire was brought under control within three hours of crews being called and its cause was linked to a bonfire near the stable block.

The horse which had been hurt was checked by a vet.

It suffered slight singeing to its back.

Two fire crews from Worcester and one from Malvern were called to the fire at about 1440 BST.
