The lads from Welshpool Fire Station were called upon to make a dramatic rescue this morning, after a horse had wandered into trouble in the River Severn.

Concern was raised after ‘Ted’ decided to wade into the river near Llandrinio, but got out of its depth literally, requiring the team’s help (pictured).

The crews at Welshpool are specially trained in river rescues and responded to the call immediately to save the horse’s life.

“The station’s Swift Water Rescue and Boat Crews were mobilised and thankfully Ted is safe and well and back with its owners,” said a station spokesperson.
