Miniature horse rescued from concrete drain

Fire crews have rescued a miniature horse after it was found trapped in a 1.5-metre deep drain.

Specialist animal rescue firefighters from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service (HFRS) were scrambled when the horse, called Chiquita, was discovered in the drain off Purbrook Heath Road, Waterlooville, on Thursday.

Great job from all involved. Little 'Chiquita' is out safe and well and being checked by the vets. pic.twitter.com/k6nFx3WfiK
