Horse put down after pond fall

A VET was forced to put down his horse after it fell into a Suffolk pond.

Fire crews were called at around 4.20pm today to rescue the animal at paddocks in Long Green, Wortham.

But by the time they arrived, the owner had already taken the decision to end its life because it was old and distressed, a spokeswoman for Suffolk Fire and rescue Service said tonight.
