Stray horses are costing Dudley Council money a Freedom of Information request has revealed. 

The Express and Star report:

Almost £150,000 has been spent on rounding up stray horses in one Black Country borough in the past two years, new figures show.

Officials from Dudley Council say they are committed to tackling the problem and are working with the RSCPA and police.

Further talks are also planned to discuss how to improve the welfare of strays seen grazing in the borough.
