Firefighters rescue an elderly horse in Wannock



Crowborough’s specialist Animal Rescue Unit was called upon to assist an elderly horse after it became stuck halfway down a bank in Wannock.

The unit includes an off-road Land Rover, as well as a purpose-built Mercedes four-by-four Unimog off-road appliance, designed to provide assistance with animal rescues. This is fitted with a hydraulic crane capable of lifting farm animals from open water and ditches.

The team worked alongside Eastbourne firefighters to bring the horse to safety at 7.38am this morning (18th February).
