FIRE crews were called to Norton Fitzwarren this afternoon to rescue a trapped horse.

One specialist rescue team from Bridgwater was dispatched at around 2.50pm to free the horse which was trapped in a horse box at Minehead Road, Norton Fitzwarren.


A vet was also on scene to sedate the horse and crews used lines and strops to safely release the animal.

The horse was left in the hands of the owner.
