It wasn’t just the emergency services that were busy during Storm Doris yesterday.
Fenland Animal Rescue volunteers were out in force ensuring the safety of the region’s animals – including lending a hand when a lorry overturned into a field with a number of horses in on the A141 at Rings End.
The charity quickly arrived at the scene and found that luckily, no animals had been trapped under the HGV which had been toppled by the high winds.
A spokesman said: “Our team set to work to ensure the animals were dealt with and secure whilst the emergency services were on scene seeing to the drivers.
“This allowed for a quick and successful rescue for everyone involved and thankfully no-one was hurt.”
