Escaped horse rescued from swimming pool in Essex

A horse has been rescued from a swimming pool in Essex.

The horse, called Tequila, had escaped from its paddock near Chelmsford Road, in White Roding, near Dunmow, on Wednesday afternoon.

Tequila fell into a covered swimming pool at a property on Chelmsford Road and became trapped in the water.

Two fire crews drained the pool then used bales of hay to help the 30-year-old horse out. Tequila is staying in a stable to recover.
