The crash took place near Dial Post, south of Horsham, shortly after 8.45pm on Monday, November 20 and involved a riderless horse and a car.

A spokesman for Sussex Police said: "The motorist was unhurt, despite the horse crashing through the windscreen, but sadly the animal sustained injuries which were expected to result in it being put down.

"The horse was believed to have been one of several which had strayed onto the road in the dark."
