A spokesperson for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said: "The owner didn’t find the horse but is aware and they called for the vet to assist while two fire service vehicles are on site to help free the animal."

The vet gave the horse pain relief and prepared sedation so that the crew could use their animal rescue equipment to lift the horse out.
