Firefighters from the Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service are on the look out for a new horse box for their horse Randy.

The stallion is a mannequin who works for the service to help teach firefighters how to rescue real horses when they get into trouble.

Operational Support Officer Jennie Schamp said his current horse box will soon be unusable and one is needed to transport him around the county.

'The problem we have is that the horse box we have is getting to its end of time and soon isn't going to be road worthy,' she said. 'We need to replace it as we have teams in King's Lynn, Thetford, Norwich, Carrow and Dereham who all need to use him to train.

'He is the only mannequin we have and we have a number of teams within the service that need to train with him frequently to keep up their standards.'
