Horse and trap raced on Leicester dual carriageway

An animal charity has condemned footage of a horse and trap being raced along a dual carriageway.

Mark Johnson filmed the incident on a dashcam while driving along the A46, the Leicester Western Bypass, on Sunday morning.

Leicestershire Police said it was investigating.

The RSPCA said: "Driving a horse or pony on a major road like this can cause unnecessary stress, exhaustion, injury and poses a serious risk of collision."
