Motorists were saddled with an unexpected delay on the M62 yesterday evening after a police horsebox broke down on a slip round at Chain Bar roundabout.

The eastbound slip road towards Leeds was closed temporarily while the reserve horsebox was requested.

The second vehicle was angled across the road to keep the four horses away from any traffic and allow them to be safely transferred.

The horses and their riders are thought to have been returning from duty at Huddersfield Carnival, which took place on Saturday afternoon.
