Horse rescued from fencing wire

Kellways, Backwell

Crews from Nailsea and Bedminster fire stations were called to free a 15 hands horse that was stuck in wire fencing.

Firefighters managed to free the horse from the fencing but needed the assistance of a vet to remove wire wrapped around its leg.

Once the horse was sedated, crews were able to safely remove the final wiring and the horse was left in the care of the vet.
