Rush-hour traffic was interrupted in a British town when a group of 30 escaped horses went parading through the streets, UPI reports.
Witnesses reported the herd of horses running loose Thursday morning on Reepham Road and Drayton High Road in Hellesdon, England.
Surprised witnesses captured video of the equines running loose in the roads before police and local farmers were able to lead the animals to safety. The Hillside Animal Sanctuary said it is investigating how the horses managed to get out of their barn.
“The last member of staff who checked the barn last night has assured us that it was secure. The horses were all secure at 6 p.m.,” sanctuary founder Wendy Valentine told the Eastern Daily Press.
She said none of the animals were injured. “It’s a massive relief that there weren’t any incidents [involving the horses] or members of the public,” Valentine said.
