Police horses in city before Newport County’s clash with Bristol Rovers
7:00am Thursday 8th August 2013 in News
POLICE horses have been out and about on the streets of Newport this week.
The mounted officers have been getting a feel for the city centre in anticipation for some of Newport County AFC’s biggest football clashes this season.
Gwent Police does not have any horses of its own, so they have come from neighbouring South Wales Police.
In particular, the officers are preparing for County’s biggest clash since their summer return to the Football League after a 25 year absence when they face near neighbours Bristol Rovers at Rodney Parade on August 17.
With large numbers of fans expected from both sides, mounted officers will be drafted in for the game to reassure fans and residents alike and help the police to deal with any trouble.
