Storm Callum: Stranded horses rescued from flood water

Dramatic footage has captured the moment a farmer jumps into a flooded field to rescue his two horses.

The video, captured by Becky Eardley, shows farmer Gareth Silcox swimming alongside his horse in a field in Gilwern, near Abergavenny in Monmouthshire.

One of the horses - seen in the video - was partially submerged and needed freeing from a fence.

"The water was right up to their chins - you can see they couldn't touch the ground until it became a lot shallower," said Ms Eardley.
