Shetland pony Charlie once lived on a council estate in north London,

chained up on land nearby during the day and taken inside to his owner's tenth floor council flat at night.

The Guardian (Jan 10, p11) reported that when Charlie was found by

Enfield LBC animal warden Melissa Corliss, tied up with a metal chain, the pony was removed from council property.

Now the pony is living at an animal sanctuary, with help from money raised by council staff. An Enfield LBC spokesman told the paper: 'Council workers have started an appeal to buy Charlie and keep him at a sanctuary and the pounds have been pouring in. Charlie is very cute and he has become a very popular cause.'
