Firefighters were called this morning to rescue a horse from a water-filled dyke on the outskirts of Whittlesey.
Crews from Whittlesey and Dogsthorpe were called to East Delph shortly after 6am.
The horse had to be sedated by a vet before crews were able to pull it from the water.
Station commander Jamie Johnson, the officer in charge at the incident, said: “This was a difficult rescue due to the depth of the water and the size of the horse.
“The crews did a great job working with the vet to ensure the horse was rescued safely and was unharmed.”
