Neigh-bourhood watch: Horse trots into Cheshire Police HQ
A horse evaded the waving arms of security to make it into a Cheshire police station.
The equine interloper hot-hoofed it into the force's HQ in Winsford from a neigh-bouring field and refused to stall for baffled bobbies.
Officers said the prancing prankster wasn't in the station fur-long but it did stir-up a commotion with staff.
They escorted the mane offender out of the building and said: "At neigh point did the horse pose a risk to security!"
The galloping gadabout remains under suspicion of fencing.
Bale was set at £25, also known as a pony.
'Why the long face?'
BBC readers have been enthusiastically responding to this story on Twitter and, far from being a two-horse race, the pursuit of the best pun is a wide-open field. Here are some of the runners and riders:
- SavourTooth tweets: "He has been brought in for equestering."
- Jan McNamee suggests Winsford is a "one-horse town".
- James Crawford tweets that the horse "asked for another 49 ofFENCES to be taken into consideration. Police thought at first it was race related."
- Paul Haigh adds: "Another collar for the Yard."
