A driver in Poland has been fined for travelling with an unusual passenger.

Hieronim Kapuscinski’s was reprimanded by the police after they spotted a foal in the back of his Fiat Uno.

According to the Austrian Times the horse was being transported 150miles from a livestock market near Warsaw back to Mr Kapuscinski’s farm in the north of the country.

Police caught up with the car when it broke down in a layby.

Mr Kapuscinski was fined £50 for inappropriate use of a car and the foal was confiscated until a proper trailer could come and pick it up.
