Hold your horses – that's not something you see every day. Grandfather-of-two Ken Higginson was left feeling a little unstable after finding himself queuing behind this fine four-legged animal at a cashpoint.

He had gone to the Murco Petrol Station, in Gospel Oak Road, Tipton, to withdraw money ahead of a trip to Blackpool when he saw the horse with two men. And the 79-year-old couldn't resist the opportunity to take a picture.

"I looked up and I was amazed," said Mr Higginson, from Oval Road in Tipton.

"I've never been behind a horse in a queue for a cash machine that's for sure.

"I asked the men for permission to take a picture and they didn't mind."

Sandwell Council launched a campaign to clamp down on roaming and tethered horses in Tipton last year – amid complaints they were causing traffic problems and injury to pedestrians.
