Fire and Rescue crews were called out to an unusual sight in Long Lawford last night.

The service was contacted at 9.50pm yesterday (Thursday) after a horse became stuck over a gate in a field off Thurnmill Road.

Crews from Southam and the large Animal Rescue Team from Rugby arrived on the scene where they assessed the situation. Together, they helped to rescue the horse using hydraulic cutting equipment.

The horse was later released uninjured back into the field and is not thought to be any the worse for its ordeal - though it might think twice about making any bids for freedom in future.
