Three runaway horses bolted through the streets of central London on Monday after one was spooked by a bus and two others tossed their riders, the Army said.

The Army said one horse had minor injuries but didn’t require further treatment and neither soldier was injured.

The scene was reminiscent of but less chaotic than an incident when five horses bolted in April and two were seriously injured.
