The Army has now confirmed that all escaped horses in London have been contained and are being taken care of by vets.

The incident outside the Clermont Hotel on Buckingham Palace Road, Victoria saw at least one soldier hurt when a horse was spooked.

A spokesperson for London Ambulance Service (LAS) said: "Our first paramedics were on the scene in under a minute.

“The incident is still ongoing and we are working with our emergency services partners.”
