Suffolk police received a number of calls reporting a “very distressed” horse galloping along the road near Frostenden, near Wrentham, at around 8.45am.

The animal apparently bolted from a field after becoming frightened when the rug on its back fell off.

It was caught and returned to the field by the time police officers arrived on scene.
