A horse was killed in a collision with a car on the M25 on Wednesday 17th November, after escaping from a horsebox.
The horse got onto the motorway at junction thirty, Great Warley, Essex, at around 10.15am, where it was then hit by another vehicle.
The accident happened at around 10.20am after a horsebox overturned, blocking the clockwise carriageway between junctions twenty-nine for Romford and thirty for Lakeside.
The horse escaped the crash onto the road, but sadly was then struck by another vehicle.
A vet was immediately called to the scene. The horse had broken its leg and had heavy bleeding, so was put down at around 10.50am.
The road was still closed in both directions for around an hour as the horse’s body was removed.
