FIREFIGHTERS freed a horse from a mud-filled ditch in Yatton last night.

The horse had become stuck in an eight foot-deep ditch near to Claverham Drove, with one pump from Yatton, and one from Bedminster, and one pump and a rescue tender from Weston called to the scene at around 7pm.

The male horse was released from the ditch from the lifting arm of the rescue tender, and although a vet was on standby, it was uninjured and able to return to its field.
