Rescuing ‘Houdini’ the horse who had escaped its field three times was just one of the incidents police in Wisbech were called to over the weekend.
The horse, given the name Houdini by police, fled its field in Sealey’s Lane, Parson’s Drove, so officers were called to help track it down.
As well as dealing with an escapee horse, PSCOs undertook patrols of the town centre, St Peter’s Church and gardens, Tillery Park and The Crescent over the weekend.
Patrols were also undertaken in Waterlees Road and Windsor Drive where there have recently been reports of youth riding motorcycles without helmets on and the motorbikes displaying no registration plates.
Police were also called to the scene to assist with traffic control after a vehicle broke down between Wisbech and Guyhirn, because it had just one nut holding the front wheel on.
