Crews from Cambridge and Chatteris were called to help a horse trapped in the river near Mepal on Saturday morning (13).

A spokesman said: “They arrived to find a horse stuck in mud in the water.

“Using their in-water kit they entered the river to help release the horse and lead it onto the bank and safely away from the area.”

A video on the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Facebook page shows a crew in their kit keeping the horse calm while they prepare to lead it onto the bank.
