FIREFIGHTERS helped to rescue a horse which got trapped in a bog.

The incident off The Causeway, Petersfield, happened at about 9pm last night.

A passer-by raised the alarm after realising the animal was in difficulty.

Havant firefighters, an animal rescue unit from Lyndhurst, two support vehicles from Bordon and Eastleigh and an animal rescue expert from Eastleigh got involved in the operation.

They discovered the horse’s owner had gone away on holiday.
