Equine insurance: Stolen horse box rams police

Authorites in County Durham are investigating an incident in which a stolen horse box was used to damage a police car, highlighting the importance of equine insurance.

BBC News reported that the vehicle had been pulled over by officers travelling on the A68, near Howden-le-Wear.

However, as the police personnel exited their car to speak to the drivers of the horse box early on Wednesday (May 11th) morning, it reversed into the police vehicle before speeding off.

As a result, the police motor sustained extensive damage. The horse box was later found abandoned, after it is believed to have crashed into a field near Crook.

Officers are looking for two men suspected of taking the trailer from a farm in Langley Park and believe they may have been injured.

Earlier this week, the Somerset County Gazette reported that a horse box was one of three vehicles involved in a multi-car pile-up in Minehead.
