Pictures: horses bring M25 to a standstill

Drivers were brought to a standstill on the M25 this morning, after a group of horses got loose on the carriageway in Hertfordshire.

Astonished commuters snapped these pictures, as police chased the animals to get them out of the road.

The horses have now been removed but there are still severe delays on the anticlockwise carriageway between junctions 22 and 27.

Couldn't think of a better way to spend my morning than jammed and not moving on the M25 due to horses running around http://t.co/2JELUdf2

"wild horses couldn't stop me". Hmm. If you're on the m25 this morning, apparently they can!
