Video footage has emerged online of Kent Police seemingly chasing a horse and cart through the streets of Canterbury.

The footage, shared by the Kent_999s Twitter feed, shows the horse, with two young men riding the cart, trotting down Broad Street and Military Road.

One marked police car closely follows the cart as it continues through the streets without stopping, despite an umarked police car also driving in front with its blue lights on.
