Ch Insp Sue Bushell of Lancashire Constabulary’s Mounted branch, said: “We are all completely devastated by the loss of Morecambe in such tragic circumstances.

“The horses are a big part of our police family and Morecambe will be sorely missed by his riders and many colleagues from across the force.

“Our thoughts remain with our injured colleague at this extremely difficult time.”

As a result he suffered a serious injury to his stomach and despite receiving urgent medical attention from a vet, he was pronounced dead at the scene.
