The London Fire Brigade has successfully rescued a horse called Mischief that lived up to his name and become stuck in a ditch.

The 22 year old animal was lifted out of his predicament in Woodhall Lane in Pinner yesterday.

Firefighters from Wembley and Harrow fire stations used specialist animal rescue equipment in the operation.

Borough Commander Richard Claydon, who was at the scene, said:

Mischief didn’t have enough room to get himself to his feet so firefighters dug a little bit out of the embankment to give him some extra space. Crews used a harness to turn him around in the ditch before giving him a helping hand to his feet. He was a little bit shaky at first, but was soon happy enough to walk away. Fortunately he has no injuries.
