Horse rescued from Cheshire ditch by firefighters
A horse had to be rescued by firefighters after falling into a ditch.
The animal, named Biggles, tumbled into the grassy trench at a farm in Croft, Cheshire, at 10:15 BST.
Vets sedated the horse before it was hoisted to safety with the help of a tractor, after an hour-long rescue involving specialist firefighters.
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service said the 28-year-old horse was recovering well after its ordeal.
The service's animal rescue unit from Lymm and a rope rescue unit from Bollington were called, along with crews from Lymm and Wigan.
