Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward after reports that a car hit and wounded a horse.

The incident happened at around 3.15pm on Saturday on Church Road in Henstead, Suffolk.

Vikki Rogers said she was riding the horse past Annabelle's Equestrian and was almost at the turn off for Toad Row when a car crashed into the horse's hind legs.

She said the horse kicked out and left a large dent in the front left wheel arch, with part of the car falling off into the road, but the vehicle continued towards the A12.

The horse's legs were left with deep cuts but he is expected to make a full recovery.
