Local equine resident who wandered into Cheshire's Police HQ from a nearby field posed 'neigh' risk to security.
Front of house staff are quite used to seeing long faces walk through their doors in the early hours, but not ones that come in on four legs.
Staff at Cheshire Police's HQ had never seen (or herd) anything like the horse approaching the automatic door. Despite their attempts to stop it from entering, the animal galloped into the station, straight through its mane entrance.
The horse had wandered in from a nearby field and was eventually safely hoofed off the premises, in the early hours of October 6.
Superintendent Peter Crowcroft said: “We were some what saddled with our unexpected guest, who in the early hours of the morning quickly became the mane event of the night shift.
"We like to ensure a warm welcome to all our guests at HQ, and at neigh point did the horse pose a risk to security and appeared to be a well cared for animal."
