Suffolk Punches help Stansted

The planes flying into and out of Stansted may be getting bigger and better but the Essex airport is going back to basics on the ground.

It has called on the services of Suffolk Punch horses to help it manage woodland at the end of the runway. The airport owns the 40 hectare site.

The horses have been removing felled wood, which is then recycled or used as fuel for the terminal building.
