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”.

This means that we can bring our readers not only the stories which matter but also stories without the negative spin and bias.

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
