Wandering horse stops traffic on the A1 near Grantham

Have your say

A runaway horse caused chaos on the A1 today (Friday).

Lincolnshire Police’s roads policing unit attended the scene after a horse ventured into the road near to Colsterworth, and also had to deal with a road collision nearby involving two HGV lorries.

Both the northbound and southbound carriageways were closed for short time. The southbound carriageway reopened first, with one lane on the northbound following closely.

The A1 reopened fully early this afternoon.
