Firefighters rescue horse from well



Firefighters have rescued a horse that had become stuck down a well.

Four fire crews – as well as an animal rescue unit – were sent to Herbert Street, Crewe, at around 4.30pm.

A Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said:  “On arrival the horse’s owner was in attendance and the animal was in a calm state in around 3ft of water.

“Firefighters removed the side of the well to improve access to the horse.

“The horse was sedated by a vet as an animal rescue team applied rescue strops to it.

“The horse was then lifted out of the well by a telehandler and put in a safe place.
