Concern for Dartmoor ponies


A Devon animal charity is concerned about the welfare of Dartmoor ponies in the prolonged cold weather.

South West Equine Protection (SWEP) say that although the ponies are hardy creatures, some are struggling to find food because of the snow cover.

There are some 1,000 ponies on Dartmoor, and they may need a helping hand to get through the long cold snap.

BBC Spotlight's Johnny Rutherford reports from Dartmoor, where he speaks to Louise Cummins from SWEP.
