Olivia Wynn, a student from Rochdale, took this picture from her car, just by junction 27 near Birstall.

The horse had to be put down after suffering severe damage to its leg.

Olivia said: "I looked up and I saw this horse. It was coming full force at us. Then I just snapped and got the picture."

"I was just praying it didn't hit the car and injure itself."
