Police are urgently trying to locate the owners of two small ponies found straying on the M1 slip road at Junction 28 at South Normanton.
Police were alerted to the ponies by a member of the public shortly after midnight on Sunday May 11. Officers attended and managed to corral the ponies to a safe area to prevent danger to them or motorists.
The ponies were later removed for safekeeping but will be re-homed should the owner not come forward.
If you know who the owner is please contact the Derbyshire Horse Watch Co-ordinator Lesley on 01773 831251 quoting police incident 37 of 11th May.
