A visitor to Devizes was shocked to discover two loose horses as he walked by The Green in the early hours of Saturday morning (2nd).

The man was walking through town at 3.45am when he reported the animals, which belonged to nearby travellers, to the police.

A police spokesman said: “He saw the first horse at 3.45am and contacted us, but we had no reports of any missing horses.

“Then, ten minutes later he came across a second horse, and called us again. It transpired the horses weren’t tethered but belonged to local travellers at a nearby caravan.

“He said he was from the city, and wasn’t used to see loose horses.”
