British army provides update after Household Cavalry horses rampage through London

The British army has shared an update after military horses ran amok in central London after being spooked by falling rubble on Wednesday 24 April.

Several Household Cavalry soldiers were thrown from their mounts before the animals bolted in the capital.

In a video shared on social media, Lieutenant Colonel Matt Woodward confirmed that three soldiers “incurred injuries which are not deemed to be life-threatening” and are receiving treatment in hospital.

The escaped horses have all been returned to Hyde Park Barracks, where they are undergoing veterinary care.
