Firecrews in Devon worked yesterday (Thursday 8 January) to free a pony that had become stuck in a frozen pond.

The pony slipped into the pond in Yelverton, West Devon, at about 4pm.

It became trapped in the middle of the pond due to the ice and firefighters had to use a winch and strop to remove the pony.

It was unharmed but taken home by the owners to warm up after being exposed to the cold water.
