A four-year-old horse had to be pulled from a swimming pool by rescue crews after becoming stuck.

The animal, aptly named Mischief, became trapped after it wandered on to a plastic covering over the pool outside a neighbour's home.

A vet was called to sedate the 14-hand animal to enable crews to pull it to safety.

Watch manager Jim Green, of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, said Mischief was now safe and back with its owner.
