Firefighters from across Hampshire have helped rescue a miniature horse.

Crews were called to Purbrook Heath Road in Waterlooville yesterday morning (Thursday 15th August) to find the animal trapped in a concrete drain.

The horse measured 9.2 hands and weighed approximately 250kg. 

Animal rescue experts and vets were also at the scene to help Chiquita, who was later lifted to safety and escaped without injury.

You can take a look at pictures and video of what happened below.
