A MAN will appear in court tomorrow charged with dangerous driving after a horse was put down following a collision.
Alex Cole, aged 23, is due to appear in court in connection with the collision near Newent, Forest of Dean earlier this year which resulted in a horse being euthanised.
Cole, from Bartwood Lane, Pontshill in Ross-on-Wye, has been charged with dangerous driving, perverting the course of justice and failing to stop at a collision in Clifford’s Mesne on March 7.
The horse received veterinary treatment, but was put down due to the injuries sustained. The 19-year-old rider had been thrown from the horse and required medical attention.
Cole was charged via way of postal requisition and is due to appear at Cheltenham Magistrates’ Court tomorrow, Wednesday, September 21, for his first appearance.
