A spokesman for Essex Fire and Rescue Service said crews from Chelmsford, Great Baddow and Rayleigh Weir attended the scene.

"The pony wandered in, it is not owned by the householders," the spokesman said.

The firefighters used 'skid' lifting equipment to raise the pony out of the pool and back on to dry land.

"The pony has avoided serious injury, but was left in the care of a vet as a precaution," the spokesman added.
