Police were called to a major stretch of Yorkshire motorway on Saturday night due to an unlikely visitor.

A Shetland pony was spotted on the M62 around junction 26 at Chain Bar, meaning traffic officers were forced to put a rolling road block in place until it could be safely removed.

Police were called just before midnight and the road block remained in place for around 20 minutes.
