A dying woman's wish to see her horse one last time has been fulfilled, after it was allowed to visit her at a hospice.

She was dozing and I gently woke her saying ‘look who’s come to see you’. When she saw Teddy she was overwhelmed and had the biggest, brightest smile I’ve ever seen light up her face." The full story is on the Lancashire Evening Telegraph website.
