WATCH: Man runs onto racecourse and tries to race horses

A man who ran onto the track at Leicester Racecourse- and tried to race the other horses, has been banned for life.

It happened during the final furlong of the Cream Gorse Handicap at just before 9 o'clock last night.

No-one was injured and the race finished as normal.

Clerk of the course Jimmy Stevenson has described the man's actions as 'madness'.
