TWO horses leading a funeral procession got loose and created pandemonium on the A12 today.
The black horses, complete with decorative plumes, broke free at about 1pm and ran down the southbound carriageway of the road at Copdock.
Police put out an urgent request for motorists to use extreme caution in the area of the A12 and A14 roundabout at Copdock. Traffic was stopped in the area of the nearby Tesco supermarket but not before the runaway horses collided with two cars. The extent of the damage was not initially known.
Reports from motorists suggested the horses were being followed down the A12 by a funeral car.
The horses were recaptured by their owners just after 1.15pm and traffic was held at a stop while they were walked back up the A12 to the roundabout.
