Police appeal for help after stray horses found

Police are trying to trace the owners of a herd of horses that were found straying close to a road near South Normanton.

The animals were spotted by a member of the public on the loose near Sporton Lane.

Officers and animal handlers placed the horses in a nearby field after it was reported on 24th November.

The owners have still not been traced and police are appealing for anyone with information on who the animals belong to to get in touch.

Most of the 10 horses are brown and white and some are foals.

Anyone with information should call Derbyshire police on 101, quoting incident 451 of 24th November.
