FreeNelly: Police search for owner of horse found on the loose in Hertfordshire
Police have taken to Twitter in order to search for the owner after the horse was discovered and captured in the early hours of this morning
Police are searching for the owners of a horse found on the loose early this morning in Hertfordshire.
The animal was discovered just off the A602 Ware Road in Whempstead, between Hertford and Stevenage, causing police to close the road as they tried to catch him.
“Currently trying to catch a loose horse #Whempstead just off of the #A602 #Herts #WhoaNelly,” Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire road police tweeted.
“Road between #A602 Ware Road & #Whempstead currently closed whilst we try and deal with a loose horse #WhoaNelly.”
Eventually, officers were able to round up the horse and take him to temporary accommodation.
“We're pleased to report Nelly was rescued after his big adventure & is currently enjoying a temporary new home! #WhoaNelly,” the force tweeted, keeping the public up to date with the key developments.
Now, using the the Twitter hashtag ‘FreeNelly’ - which officers have affectionately named him - the force is urging anyone who might know who the horse belongs to, to get in touch.
He is believed to be from the Whempstead or Bennington area, police said. Anyone with information is urged to call 101, the non emergency police number.
