PC Lee Clarke said: “Thankfully, the horses appear to be on the mend, however the substance they ate has been confirmed as poisonous.

“Our enquiries so far have led us to believe that someone could have fed the horses this substance and we are investigating the incident.

“I’d like to hear from anyone who was in the area at around that time and saw anything suspicious, or who knows anything about the incident."
