Horse walks into Cheshire police headquarters

It sounds like the start of a joke but a horse really did walk into a Cheshire police station early on Monday morning.

The noble steed, who lives in a nearby field, ambled into the force's headquarters in Winsford, much to the surprise of security staff.

A Cheshire Constabulary spokesman said the animal was "quickly escorted" back, adding: "We like to ensure a warm welcome to all our guests at HQ and at neigh point did the horse pose a risk to security!"
