Horse rescue efforts resume today

Efforts to rescue some 100 horses stranded in the middle of flood water since Wednesday’s storm will continue today. With the water receeding slightly, the emergency services hope to encourage the animals to walk through the water to the sea dyke.

The animals will first be checked by vets to make sure they are up to the walk. The entire operation is expected to take all day.
