Appeal to trace owner of two horses killed on the A19

Police are trying to trace the owner of two horses which were killed on the A19 southbound near Wolviston on Sunday night.

Near to midnight on Sunday a member of the public rang police reporting the animals on the Wolviston/A19 roundabout, but before officers arrived, the animals had wandered onto the southbound carriageway where they were hit by an HGV.

It is possible that both were pregnant at the time as the bodies of two foals were also discovered at the scene.

One of the adult horses was brown and white, the other dark grey with a white underbelly.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Cleveland Police
