Morecambe the police horse

PICTURES: Memories of Lancashire Police horse Morecambe who has died in service

A police horse working at a Bank Holiday Monday football match died on duty following a "tragic accident".

Morecambe was working at the League One game between Blackpool and Fleetwood at Bloomfield Road and fell onto a metal pole. Here are some pictures looking back at Morecambe's life from the @LancsPolMounted Twitter feed:
