Is Brian a bad name for a horse?

A horse in police training may be able to keep his name, after people complained on social media about plans to change it from Brian, to something more imposing.

Thames Valley Police said: "Following a public outcry, it looks like Brian may keep his name."

The six-year-old horse must pass six weeks of training if he is to be part of the mounted section.

Ben Moore reports.
