Woman in horse fall

A WOMAN was left trapped underneath a horse in Holme-on-Spalding Moor last Thursday after the animal fell into a ditch.

A fire crew from Market Weighton and a special technical appliance from Howden were sent to the scene and the woman was airlifted to hospital with suspected leg injuries by the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The horse was uninjured but in a distressed state so a vet sedated the animal as it was winched to safety.
