Horses found roaming at interchange

By Ed Elliot, Penistone Reporter Monday 30th December 2013

Commuters were greeted by four horses roaming around the entrance to the transport interchange this morning.


Police were called before 6am about the animals running loose on Harborough Hill Road.


Dave Whitehead arrived in town by train more than an hour later to see them outside the interchange. He said: "It was very bizarre. Police were already there and they were trying to usher them into the Back Regent Street arcade."


A police spokesman said officers managed to contain the horses. The owner was contacted and collected them.
