There are fears over a jump in the number of horses being neglected or abandoned in Cornwall.

The RSPCA says it is dealing with more and more cases across the south-west.

The charity reckons breeders are flooding the market, but they cannot afford to keep animals they are not selling on.

Spokeswoman Jo Barr says some are in a right state: "Horses that don't have enough to eat, don't have water and don't have hay. There are a lot of underweight horses and horses that are not being seen by the farrier on a regular basis, which can lead to long and very painful hooves".
