Fire crews stage two hour horse rescue
 

Firefighters from Wigan and Leigh rescued a horse from a waterlogged ditch in a late night rescue mission.
Crews were called to a location off Newton Road in Lowton just after midnight on Monday.
The 12-hand horse had become trapped in a ditch which was three foot deep with mud and water.
It was eventually freed after a two hour effort with firefighters using slings to raise the horse out.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said a vet was called to assess the animal’s condition.
