Bishop Auckland police offer horse micro-chipping

Horse owners are being given the chance to have their animals micro-chipped at a reduced rate.

Durham Constabulary is working with the British Horse Society (BHS) to promote a horse identification event in Bishop Auckland.

To encourage responsible ownership, microchipping for £10 is being offered to owners who can produce a current horse passport.

The event is at Bishop Auckland Community Fire Station on 14 January.
