Police in Portadown seized a horse today following several reports of it wandering on the road.

A police spokesman said, “There is a very real and obvious concern that this animal could cause a serious road traffic collision.

“Unfortunately the collision on the Brownlow Road, Craigavon, at the beginning of November when a pony had to be put down reminds us of the dangers, thankfully the driver wasn’t seriously hurt.

“Can owners of all animals please be responsible and make sure they are kept under control.”
