A 92-YEAR-OLD driver has been interviewed by Isle of Wight police after an alleged hit and run in Brading High Street involving a car and two horses.

Police have appealed for witnesses following the collision, which took place between 2.15pm and 2.45pm on Tuesday.

Two horses were being ridden along the High Street when a gold coloured Nissan Micra was involved in a collision with one of them, police said.

The driver did not stop according to police.

PC James Holden said:"Luckily the riders were uninjured, but they have been left shocked by what happened.

"One of the horses is believed to have minor muscular injuries which might need further treatment.

"However, this could have resulted in far worse injuries to the horses and ultimately their riders.

"This was a busy time of the day and we know there were quite a few people who witnessed this incident. If you saw this happen please get in touch with me at Shanklin Police Station by phoning 101 and quoting ref 44130455316."

Information can also be given anonymously through the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
