Havering’s finest got to try out their horse whispering techniques today as they managed to return a runaway horse safely to its stables.
The runaway steed was found after police officers were called to Avon Road and found him hoofing about.
A spokesman for Cranham’s Safer Neighbourhood Team told the Recorder: “The horse made an escape bid to visit lovely Cranham.
“He was detained and walked back to his stables after escaping his field.”
The horse becomes the latest entry in an illustrious list of runaway animals that have been spotted throughout Havering.
In June 2016, Havering Police officers launched an appeal after a bright orange snake was discovered in a residential road.
May 2016 also saw a pair of domesticated peacocks on the loose for an entire week in Hornchurch, baffling many residents.
And in March last year, Havering Police officers were forced to go on a literal wild goose chase after a runaway bird was spotted on the A12.
