A teenaged horse rider was left badly shaken when a driver deliberately passed too closely, clipping her and her horse.

Sixteen-year-old Jo McCormac and her horse Dubh were struck by the wing mirror of one of two vans which had purposefully driven past repeatedly while she was riding in Mill Lane, in Whitfield, last Saturday.

The white vans had sped up as she approached while out on an afternoon ride and then turned round to come past her several times. Dubh was spooked by the vehicles, spinning round in the road and trying to head for home.
