7:30pm Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
A TRIAL to see if police horses can help reduce anti-social behaviour in Somerset during the summer holidays has been hailed a success.
More than 350 hours of patrols were carried out across the Avon and Somerset Police area, including many in Bridgwater.
Mounted Section Sergeant Kerry Williams said: “People seem to warm to the horses and feel more comfortable speaking to us, which can only be a good thing."
