A motorist was left baffled after spotting a HORSE charging down a dual carriageway – in the wrong direction.

Richard Saxel, 50, was driving north on the A3 when he saw the thoroughbred running towards him.

Footage shows the bizarre moment the riderless horse gallops past.

Richard, who saw the animal near Guildford on January 27, said: "I became aware of all the traffic travelling south flashing their headlights.

"I thought it was a VIP in a convoy. Then the traffic on my side starts peeling left and right.

"I saw this horse galloping down the road. It was saddled so it must gave escaped its rider.

"It just kept running and running – it must have gone a mile down the road."

Surrey Police has been approached for a comment.
