Five horses which had been left in a field in Rushden have now been removed.
The horses, which had been left to graze in a field off Barrington Road in Rushden for the last few months, were removed by their owner some time between late afternoon on Wednesday, January 9, and the morning of Friday, January 11.
A few local residents had been taking the horses hay after they became concerned about their situation.
They had also reported the issue to the RSPCA.
