Cars were seen driving behind the horses that ran past onlookers, commuters and cyclists.

A number of prestigious army regiments have horses stabled in central London and the animals are a common sight in the area.

"We are aware of a number of horses that are currently loose in central London and are working with colleagues, including the Army, to locate them," the Westminster branch of London's police said on X (formerly Twitter).
