Neighbours glancing out of their windows to see horses galloping through Oxford might have thought the lockdown was sending them a little stir crazy.
But there was no need to question their sanity - it was just the city's mounted police section pounding the pavements to chase down a wanted man.
In a short pursuit on Wednesday, police horses Atlas and Odin galloped down Abbey Road and Cripley Road.
Officers then arrested a 24-year-old man over a suspected bike theft.
The mounted section tweeted that the suspected "didn't get far" after he jumped out of a garden.
They said: "We think for the residents of Abbey Road and Cripley Road watching the horses gallop past their windows provided some light entertainment.
"Atlas and Odin deserve extra treats tonight."
