Firefighters helped rescue two shetland ponies which had wandered onto the A127 near the Mayflower Retail Park. Crews from the animal rescue team quickly herded the two animals off the road and safely back into a field. They had got the two diminutive ponies back to the safety of a field by 08:48hrs.
The incident caused tailbacks on the A127 as fire crews and Police officers dealt with the ponies.
