Firefighters had to enlist the help of a JCB to pull a horse to safety yesterday afternoon.

The animal got stuck in a ditch in Pulpit Lane, Oving.

Three fire crews from Aylesbury, Bletchley and Kidlington were called to help at 3.59pm.

The horse was secured and then pulled out uninjured using a JCB.

A Bucks Fire and Rescue spokesman said: “A horse weighs quite a lot and it took a JCB to gently tow it out.”
