Mystery of Horse Boarding Bus in London Solved on Twitter
Lifestyle| | By Robin Milling
It all began with a tweet from across the pond on January 4 by politician Simon Crowcroft. He was on his way to visit friends as he boarded the number 43 bus in Islington, a borough in London. He tweeted the curious sight, “Horse entering bus in Islington this morning @TfL.” The Islington Gazette retweeted his tweet which unleashed the hounds. It was a good outcome as the man was OK, and I am happy the pictures have been so widely shared because it emphasized the role that police play in looking after the community, which can often go unnoticed,” Crowcroft tweeted. Apparently, horses boarding strange places in the U.K. are not at all uncommon. For example, these ponies decided to take a ride on the Luas light rail tram system in Dublin, Ireland.
