Normally there’s a steady trot when the horses from woolwich barracks pass by .. today sounded like the Grand National as a few had got loose and we’re going full pelt through Charlton Village #wildhorses #horses pic.twitter.com/HBesI8G62G

The horses are based in Woolwich barracks and regularly seen around the area. Reports from a number of people state the horses bolted with sightings in Charlton Village, parks in Charlton and Cherry Orchard estate.
Emergency services are on the look out.
The MOD recently announced plans to close Woolwich Barracks but retain the King’s Troop at Napier Barracks.
