Group concerned for welfare of horses

Concern for a group of horses that were cut off by flood water has today seen local residents coming to their aid.

At one point as many 60 horses were reported to be on flooded land near the causeway at Gloucester.

A Facebook group was started to raise awareness of the horse's situation. It has nearly 3,000 members.

The RSPCA says it's happy the owners are doing enough to help the animals. But campaigners say they want the horses re-homed. Tanya Mercer reports:
