Police have praised the actions of two girls who helped to stop runaway horses from getting knocked down on an Angus road.
PC Ian Campbell thanked the youngsters for their assistance, stating: “Girls, you should be proud of yourself and so should your parents.”
The horses broke out of their field in Carnoustie on Monday night and were running close to the A92.
As PC Campbell arrived, a woman and her daughter pointed him in the direction of the loose animals.
Two young girls – who had been passing by – stopped them from running onto the main road.
PC Campbell posted his appreciation on the OurCarnoustie Facebook page later that night, highlighting that their actions stopped the horses from “potentially getting seriously hurt”.
He said: “Tonight I was asked to attend Carlogie Road due to two horses broken out of their field and running close to the A92.
“When I got there a woman and her daughter pointed me in the direction of the horses.
“There was also two young girls (who had been passing by) trying to stop them running onto the main road from the open field.
“These two young girls were amazing and did so well stopping the horses from potentially getting seriously hurt on the main road.
“I did not get a chance to properly say thank you to these girls. You made my job so much easier as I’m not a horse person.
“Girls, you should be proud of yourself and so should your parents. Thank you for your assistance.”
Afterwards, a spokesperson from Tayside Police Division added: “We’d like to reiterate what PC Campbell has said here – thanks for your help girls.”
