Horse rescued from Walney Salt Marshes in four hour operation


A multi agency rescue took place this afternoon after reports were received of a horse stuck in mud at the Salt Marshes on Walney.

A spokesperson said:

"Teams worked tiresly to firstly retrieve the horse from the mud, and then worked to get the horse to stand and eventually walk.

"It was a tense four hours as to whether the horse would make it but we are all glad to report the horse is safely in the care of a local horse owner.

"The community from the surrounding area all pulled together for the horse, including the local farmer with his tractor, local riding school all alongside a trained Equine Vet for the full duration of the rescue.

"We can't thank the public enough for allowing the teams space and time during the operation, as we had to close the only road to and from South Walney due to flooding on Thorney Nook Lane."
