In photos: Stranded horse rescued by Burnham-On-Sea fire crews

These were the scenes when Burnham-On-Sea firefighters rescued a stranded horse from a water-filled ditch on Monday evening (June 4th).

One fire crew from Burnham-On-Sea and a Special Rescue Team from Bridgwater were called to Rookery Close in Rooksbridge at 6pm.

As pictured here, they used ropes and a range of equipment to haul the horse free from the ditch.

"Crews used lines and strops to remove the horse," a fire spokesman told

The animal was not thought to have been hurt by the incident and duty of care was left with a vet who was also in attendance.
