Firefighters were called to help a horse that was stuck belly deep in water near the M6 in the West Midlands.

Ropes were attached to the mare and she was encouraged out on to the bank. It was not known how long she had been in the canal but the Express and Star said she was unharmed.

Fire crews from West Bromwich, Wednesbury and Woodgate Valley fire stations attended.

Crew commander Stephen Pougher, from West Bromwich Fire Station, said: “We don’t know how long she had been in there.

“The owners were there with her and we encouraged her out. We attached ropes to help her out and once her front legs were up she was okay.
“She was calm but just tired and needed help.”
