Woman taken to hospital after horse and cart rescue

Firefighters were called out to rescue a woman and a horse that got trapped in a rural part of west Cumbria.

Four crews were called out this morning just before 10am to a forest track just outside of Wilton, near Egremont, where a horse and cart had fell down an embankment and overturned.

The woman riding the horse was taken to hospital before the crews arrived.

Firefighters then proceeded to rescue the horse by attaching a rescue line to it so they could turn it around and pull it out of the embankment. It is not believed the horse suffered any serious injuries in the accident but it was handed over to a vet at the scene.
