On Tuesday the 19th of December 1916, P.C. Eames received a message at 1.15 p.m. from Superintendent Sullivan which instructed him to attend an incident at London Road, where a horse had fallen down near the entrance of the Railway Station. When he arrived he found a horse, which was owned by Clifford Herbert Andrews of Hockerill, had fallen over due to the slippery condition of the road and injured its back. The horse was subsequently examined by Mr H.E.J. Mason, Veterinary Surgeon, who decided that due to the severity of the animal’s injury that it would not recover. After discussion with the owner of the horse, consent was given for the horse to be slaughtered and removed at 3.31 p.m.
