Derbyshire police launch urgent appeal to find owners of ponies found straying on M1 slip road
Police are urgently trying to find the owners of two small ponies found straying on the M1 slip road at junction 28 at South Normanton.
Derbyshire Constabulary was alerted to the ponies by a member of the public shortly after midnight on Sunday, May 11.
Officers attended and managed to corral the ponies to a safe area to prevent danger to them or motorists.
The ponies were later removed for safekeeping but will be re-homed should the owner not come forward.
The owner or anyone who knows them should contact the Derbyshire Horse Watch Co-ordinator on 01773 831251.
