Two rogue horses escaped their holdings this morning, galloping through Orpington.

The pair were first spotted heading towards traffic on Star Lane at around 9.30 am.

They continued on the loose, evading police capture, until midday, when they were located by their owner.

Lucie Baker, who keeps the horses in a caravan park at the top of Star Lane, believes they were released intentionally.

She said: "Thank you to everyone. We’ve found the horses lucky enough up star lane and are now safe but very sweaty and out of breath.

"I live on the caravan site up star lane and horses were in our fields behind the plot and over night someone maliciously let them out.

"I noticed this morning when they didn’t come to call."
