Weird shots show a horse and rider taking social distance in the cooperative queue


Weird footage captured the moment a rider – with his horse – adhered to social distancing guidelines outside of a convenience store.

The footage, which was taken by Chris Wharton, shows the woman patiently lining up outside the co-op at Highfields Road, Chasetown, around 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 25.

The horse would not have entered the store, but staff were agitated at the entrance while someone bought drinks, Chris told BlackCountryLive.

He said, “I was waiting in my car when a horse came up next to me and joined the queue.

“He arrives at the door, bothering as someone enters for a drink, before continuing on the main street. Hilarious so funny. I’m so glad I took the photos. “

Amused residents gathered on social media to laugh at the unusual sight, which was described as hilarious.

“They wanted to jump the queue,” joked one of them.

Another said, “You are supposed to isolate yourself for 14 days if you start to feel like a little horse …”

And a third wrote, “Clean up two, big heaps of horses in the driveway ***”

A fourth also added: “The funniest part, no one in the queue seems to blink – as if to say yes, that’s okay. “

On Saturday April 25, the NHS England announced 711 new deaths from people who tested positive for Covid-19, bringing the total number of confirmed deaths in hospitals in England to 18,084.

The UK figure is now over 20,000, rising to 19,500 on Friday.
