A rather unusual incident at a McDonalds restaurant in Greater Manchester saw a woman on horseback turned away from their drive-thru kiosk as they are unable to serve customers on horseback for health and safety reasons.

The woman then led the animal inside the restaurant where it reportedly defecated on the floor.

A spokesperson for McDonalds said, "On 20th July a woman allowed her pony to enter our restaurant in Whitefield after being refused service in the drive-thru lane. The incident caused distress to customers and disruption for the restaurant and the police issued the woman with a fixed penalty notice".

They added, "The health and safety of our customers and staff is our top priority and for this reason we are unable to serve pedestrians, bicycle riders or customers on horseback through the drive-thru."
