A SPECIAL machine from Exeter was needed to free a horse trapped in a dry ditch in Compton Dundon yesterday morning.

Fire crews from Street and a special rescue team from Bridgwater had to deal with a large horse whose leg was trapped at 12.12pm.

To free it, a telehandler - a forklift-like machine that extends over great distances - had to be sent from Exeter.

The horse was kept calm by a vet and eventually freed with lines and strops.
