Several people have been injured after a horse broke out of its enclosure at the Pembrokeshire County Show, scattering onlookers in a “rampage”, according to reports.

Police and Welsh Ambulance Services paramedics were called to the event, the BBC reported.

A witness told the broadcaster: “A horse, presumably a show-jumping horse, seemed to break free from the area it was being held and just went on a rampage.”

A Wales Air Ambulance spokesman told The Independent: “I can confirm that Wales Air Ambulance is currently in attendance at an incident in Pembrokeshire. The incident is on-going and at this time we are unable to provide further information.”

A Twitter account for the event said: “We can confirm that there has been an incident at the Pembrokeshire County Show today.

“We are currently working with all the emergency services who are dealing with the situation.

“Six casualties are being assessed by Welsh Ambulance Services.”

The county show, which runs from 14 to 16 August, is a celebration of local produce and livestock. It is held near Haverfordwest.
