Horses tethered illegally on public open space in Bradford are to be removed, a council said.

Bradford Council said it had appointed a new contractor to impound horses left illegally on public ground and road verges.

It said the animals were a danger and could cause serious injury.

Ian Bairstow, from the council, said: "Owners of horses that are legally tethered in fields have nothing to fear."

The council is also working with West Yorkshire Police and social landlords over the use of court injunctions to stop illegal tethering.
