A horse trapped in a horse box near Broad Hinton had to be rescued by firefighters on Saturday.
Two fire crews from Royal Wootton Bassett and Marlborough were called to the junction of Summers Road and the A4361 at 3.27pm, along with a specialist animal rescue unit from Stratton.
On arrival they found the horse trapped within its trailer, and used a saw to remove part of the box, releasing the animal.
A vet was on hand to assist the horse with painkillers, and farm equipment from a nearby farm was used to lift it free.
