Horse battles with 5-bar gate in great escape
A crazed horse tried to battle its way through a five-bar gate but got stuck during its great escape.
The animal got caught up at the metal gate at Corse Lawn, north of Gloucester, this afternoon.
A fire crew from Tewkesbury and an animal rescue team from Gloucester spent an hour freeing the horse.
A vet was also called out to sedate it while the operation took place.

Chief fire officer Jon Hall told his Twitter followers that it had been a "nasty tussle" and a battle in which "the gate lost".
Station commander Steve Bateman said: "It was a great example of a calm, controlled rescue with the end result being a safe, uninjured animal and very pleased owners.
"This is a result of the introduction of specialist training and equipment to aid large animal rescues."
