Horse injured in Kessingland after incident with motorist

A HORSE suffered injuries to its legs in Kessingland after it became startled when a motorist beeped his horn several times near the animal.

The horse was being walked along London Road at about 11.50am on Monday, March 19 to a stable when a dark coloured people carrier-type vehicle heading south tried to overtake a slower moving vehicle.

The driver of the dark-coloured vehicle beeped his horn several times causing the horse to become startled.

This resulted in the animal falling to the ground, injuring its legs in the process.

The vehicle failed to stop at the scene and police are trying to trace the driver, who was white, possibly in his 50s or 60s with longish grey hair.

Anyone with information call PC 203 Roberts at Lowestoft police station on 101.
