TWO horse traps brought traffic to a snail's pace on a busy a-road.

Footage taken from an a passenger inside a car shows two riders blocking both lanes of the A56 with horses.

The pair, wearing hi-vis jackets, were filmed near the Rising Bridge Roundabout, going towards Haslingden and Rawtenstall at around 8am on Sunday.

Lancashire Telegraph:

The footage shows traffic, which is allowed to go up to 70mph on that road, going a dangerously slow 25mph.

A coach and other vehicles were seen queuing up behind the dark coloured horses.
