Horse burnt by sky lantern in Brentwood 'making recovery'

A woman from Brentwood says her horse, which suffered serious burns to its face from a sky lantern, is on the road to recovery.

Danny was found in his field earlier this week.

Bits of the lantern were also stuck to his body, and he now faces weeks of treatment.

Owner Paris Gainsford says it was a shocking sight and she wants to see the lanterns, which carry naked flames, banned.
