Central London saw a stunning event early on Wednesday morning as two horses galloped freely through the streets, causing a commotion among passers-by and commuters. 

A video that went viral on social media captured the shocking moment of the blood-stained coat of one white horse with a rider racing alongside its black partner.

Suspenseful city under threat

This oddity left many people in London fascinated and surprised, thus warranting fast action by the police. Some confusion ensued before law enforcement officers could confine the runaway horses. 

As per reports, during this incident, four individuals were injured, and the wild horses also crashed into an immobilized double-decker tour bus whose windshield was smashed.

Assistance from army

In response to unfolding events, the British army has provided support through their intervention. When dispatching some horseboxes to this location, they helped contain these animals in order to ensure their safety. The authorities will now take charge of their medical needs.

Although such sightings are rare in this crowded city, central London is not unfamiliar with equestrian presence. Many famous cavalry regiments have stables within the capital, where they can be seen regularly moving along its ancient roads. 



Nevertheless, it is unusual for uncontrolled animals like horses to run amok; hence, relevant departments must take immediate action.
