Firefighters were called to rescue a pony from a ditch in Ramsey on Saturday.

Crews from Ramsey, Huntingdon and Dogsthorpe were called at about 3.15pm to rescue the pony, which had become stuck in a bramble-filled ditch.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Firefighters attached a harness to the horse and led it out of the ditch. The pony was checked over by a vet at the scene before being released into a field.”
