Commuters Get Surprise As Horses Roam Near Interchange

Thursday January 2 2014

Barnsley Interchange Barnsley Interchange

EARLY morning commuters were greeted by four horses roaming around Barnsley Interchange's entrance on Monday.

Police were called before 6am about the animals running loose on Harborough Hill Road.

Dave Whitehead arrived in town by train more than an hour later to see them outside the building.

He said: "It was very bizarre. Police were already there and they were trying to usher them into the Regent Street arcade."

A police spokesman said officers managed to contain the horses. The owner was contacted and collected them.

Why remove them? Should have hitched them up to an actually stagecoach. Bound to be more relyable than their buses

Funny you should mention this, I walked from Barnsley to Mapplewell over the horsefields last night and there were a few horses outside of the containment area, there were a couple on the path and the fence was broken, wonder if they're the same ones.

Dave Whitehead must be devoid of entertainment if he got a train specially to come and see them!
