Posted on 26th March 2018

We are trying to trace a horse owner after a driver alleges that the animal damaged his car.

A man contacted police to report that at about 7pm on Wednesday, March 14, he stopped his black Ford Focus on Stenson Road, Derby, near to the junction with Twyford Road, in order to let a horse rider pass.

He says the horse jumped onto the bonnet of his car, causing significant damage and smashing the windscreen.
