A 30 year-old male horse has been rescued by firefighters after getting stuck in a water-filled ditch.
When crews arrived they found Nashka in the ditch with water half way up his legs.
It appears he may have been there for a number of hours.
Using specialist animal rescue equipment crews managed to get strops around the animal and with the help of a farmer’s tractor they were able to assist the animal back to the field.
He appeared to be suffering from a number of minor cuts and was cold, but otherwise unharmed by the ordeal.
