What 2 officers also attended????? Police officers or RSPCA could be anyone? The argus is really dropping the ball on covering the facts today, have they got someone on work experience doing it? Glad that they got the horse out, wouldnt have thought it a travellers hose as the magority I've seen are tied up. Where were the crews from Dyffryn? Are they not equiped for this sort of thing.
