A horse was running loose on a motorway near Leeds.

Police officers were chasing the horse last night (Tuesday), on the M606 motorway, which runs between Bradford and Cleckheaton.

In a tweet, Motorway Martin, a policeman who patrols the M62 motorway and writes about his experiences, said officers eventually managed to guide the horse down a slip road.

The horse was reunited with its owner after "an exhausting shift", he added on Twitter.

Police were assisted by officers from Highways England.
