Runaway Horses Wreak Havoc on M60

The motorway through Stockport was turned into a mule carriageway after two horses escaped their field onto the busy M60.

Morning traffic came to a standstill and frustrated commuters were delayed whilst local traffic Police officers attempted to capture the horses who had decided to take a stroll down the busy stretch of motorway.

The anticlockwise carriageway was temporarily closed causing tailbacks from junction 25 at Portwood back to the Pyramid.

Once rounded up, two lanes of the road were re-opened and both animals were returned safely to their field.
