Two dedicated officers saved a horse that had escaped from an East Ham field and ended up roaming a residential street.
PC Nathan Fallis and PCSO Emma Cricthell, from the Wall End Safer Neighbourhood Team, were on patrol when they found the horse wandering around Stevenage Road last Sunday evening - near to the field where the animal belongs.
The officers went on to locate the owner while ensuring the horse was “contained safe and well”.
Inspector Simon Hutchinson, from Newham Police, said: “As dedicated ward officers, PC Nathan Fallis and PCSO Emma Cricthell knew who the horses belonged to and made contact as soon as possible.
“Whilst waiting on the arrival of the owners, officers ensured that the loose horse was contained safe and well, causing no risk to members of public or traffic.

Once the owner arrived, officers helped place the horse back into the field, and the fencing to the field was also repaired.
