A road in Abbots Langley was forced to close briefly last week after a pony had fallen down a hole, causing the police and the fire and rescue team to come out.

Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue were called to Elms Lane at around 8:30am on Friday, January 22 after a pony had fallen down a 10ft deep hole in the woodland.

Crews from Garston Fire, Hatfield Fire and St Albans Fire spent the whole morning rescuing the Shetland pony from the hole.

Police had told the public to avoid the area while they assisted the fire and rescue teams, with the road between The Shires and Woodside Road being closed. 

Three Rivers Police provided an update on Facebook at the time, reading: “The roads have now reopened. This was due to a pony which had fallen down a hole. Thankfully, the pony is fine and being reunited with its friends having been assessed by a vet.”
