Horse in trouble off Ivy House Lane

Firefighters were called to a field off Ivy House Lane to help with a horse which had fallen over in the night.

A crew from The Ridge was dispatched at around 9.30am this morning (Saturday) along with an expert animal rescue unit from Crowborough after reports of a stricken horse.

They found an 11-year-old animal in trouble and helped owners stabilise the horse with bales of hay.

The animal is now being assessed by a vet.
