Horse walks into a police station

Have you heard the one about the horse that walked into the police station?

Well this is no joke, as the staff of a police station in Cheshire found out on Monday morning.

The curious trotter approached the automatic doors to find that they opened up, inviting him in, and he didn't need asking twice.

A Cheshire Constabulary spokesman said the animal was "quickly escorted" back, adding: "We like to ensure a warm welcome to all our guests at HQ and at neigh point did the horse pose a risk to security!"

For the record, the horse had not committed any crimes and was just an interested passer-by.
