Rescue workers have struggled to free a horse which was left hanging off the back of its box as its owner was driving along a by-pass.
The unlucky animal jumped over the partition of its horse box as its owner drove along a bypass in Twyford, and was rescued by Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service last night.
Crews were alerted to the trapped horse on the B335 in Twyford, after its owner heard a noise and pulled over to investigate. The three-year-old cob had jumped over the partition in the box into a narrow access area across the front of the van.
Crews from Winchester controlled the situation and requested the help of a vet before the animal rescue team arrived.
Vet David Languish from Animed heavily sedated the horse before crews could cut the partition away in order to free the cob.
