Swadlincote Police Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) have asked for the public’s help to trace the owner of a horse that was left, without water, tied up on a housing estate in Swadlincote.
Residents contacted their local neighbourhood policing team after they became concerned for the welfare of the animal.

A post shared on the Swadlincote Police SNT Facebook page said:
“Apologies guys, PCSO Gutberlet has spent much of the afternoon horsing around with a new friend.
“Our friend here had been tied up and left near an estate in Swadlincote; apparently the grass was much greener on one resident’s front lawn.
“Luckily for our horse, a few helpful members of our community managed to spur her on before she finished her mowing job.
“In all seriousness, we’d like the owner of this horse to come forward and contact us to provide an explanation as to why it was left where it was, without water.
“Hopefully they don’t have a lame excuse.
“We have now moved the horse to a place where it is safe”.
