FIREFIGHTERS rescued a horse that had become trapped in a muddy ditch on a farm at Duns Tew on Tuesday. Teams from Deddington and Kidlington were involved. They wore protective dry suits and battled for an hour to rescue the horse.
The owner of the animal told the fire service that the horse had been frightened and had fallen into the ditch.
Crew manager Mark Oddi said: “The incident highlights the need for farm fencing to be suitable, especially in warm dry weather when animals may seek water to keep cool.”
