Firefighters assisted emergency service partners following an incident involving horses in Central London.

Assistant Commissioner Keeley Foster, who helped co-ordinate the Brigade’s response, said: "London Fire Brigade was alerted at around 0830 today to reports of several horses that had bolted on Buckingham Palace Road in Central London.

"Crews and officers were mobilised to the scenes of two collisions, including one near Victoria Railway Station where a horse was involved in a collision with a taxi. We also assisted and worked closely with partners after a person fell from a horse in Belgrave Square.

"Due to reports that several horses were unaccounted for, the Brigade’s response for large animal rescues was also alerted, along with the drone team and National Interagency Liaison Officers to assist in the search and the horses were quickly accounted for."
