Witness recalls chaos as blood-soaked horses ran loose through London

A witness has recalled the chaos he saw as blood-soaked horses ran loose through central London after breaking free from the Household Cavalry on Wednesday, 24 April.

Jordan Pettitt, a photographer with PA Media, was in Aldwych working when the animals charged past him.

He was able to take pictures of the horses running past at speed.

Mr Pettitt described the chaos to Sky News as a “surreal” moment.

“It’s not something I would ever expect to see in London, nor would anyone,” he added, before wishing those injured a speedy recovery.

Four people were taken to hospital after they were injured in the incident.
