The Pony Express

A train passenger's been caught on CCTV trying to get on a train with his pony...only to be hoofed off by guards.

The commuter can be seen arriving at Wrexham General station where he attempts to get a ticket for himself and his hairy companion for the 7.02 service to Holyhead.

The guard tells the man large animals are not allowed on the train. A spokeswoman for Arriva said: "We allow dogs and small animals to travel on board trains."
