Military horses bolted through central London, leaving five people injured in their wake. One soldier was left “screaming in pain in the street” after chaos broke out on Wednesday (April 24).

Two horses were seen running in the road near Aldwych, one of which appeared to be covered in blood. A taxi driver waiting outside the Clermont Hotel in Buckingham Palace Road had the windows of his car smashed after a spooked horse collided with the Mercedes people carrier. A horse also crashed into a parked double-decker tour bus, smashing the windscreen.

Four people have been rushed to hospital as a result.

An Army spokesperson said: “A number of military working horses became loose during routine exercise this morning. All of the horses have now been recovered and returned to camp. A number of personnel and horses have been injured and are receiving the appropriate medical attention.”

LBC spoke to the driver of the Mercedes, Faraz, who was waiting outside the Clermont Hotel when he felt something smash into his car. He said he saw three or four horses near the vehicle, and that one member of military personnel had been thrown off and injured.

Pictures and videos of two of the animals running amok around London were shared on social media, one of which showed a black 4×4 with blue lights following two of the animals between Tower Bridge and Limehouse tunnel.

Take a look at the pictures so far in our gallery below.
