Cardiff has Wales' first horse warden

Cardiff Council last year put an ad in Horse and Hound and hired Lucy Hamblett to act as their horse warden - the first in Wales.

The post has proved such a success that Lucy's advice is now being sought by councils across the UK.

Executive Member for Housing and Neighbourhood Renewal, Councillor Judith Woodman, said: "Wild or stray horses can be a danger to Cardiff residents so to have a dedicated person tackling the issue is fantastic. It's obvious that Lucy cares a great deal about the horses and having her patrolling Cardiff means the animals welfare is a priority."

Anyone concerned about wild/stray horses in Cardiff should call the 101 service.
