A foal which became the first horse in the world to have skin graft surgery is having her second operation today.

Cinders was found in North Derbyshire at the beginning of May with appalling injuries. Animal inspectors said at the time she had the 'worst acid burns' they had ever seen.

She had pioneering surgery using fish skin grafts earlier this month.

Today two plastic surgeons who specialise in burns and plastics from Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield will help with more skin grafts and correcting scar tissue.
