A horse has died after becoming trapped in a ditch in a Suffolk village.
Fire crews were called to a ditch near Black Barn Farm in Monewden, near Wickham Market, at 12.34pm after reports that a horse was in distress.
On arrival, crews, from Ipswich, Woodbridge and Framlingham, found the horse badly injured and a vet was called to assess the situation.
A spokesman for Suffolk County Council said the animal was later declared dead at the scene and ‘stop’ was called to the incident at 1.34pm.
