A small town in South Wales is being overrun by a pack of 250 wild horses thought to have been abandoned by gypsies who could not afford to feed them.

Five of the horses have been killed when they were hit by cars and others are starving because they are not being fed.

RSPCA inspectors were on the scene today after calls from worried animal lovers.

The horses are believed to belong to gypsy families who have moved on from the area and were unable to pay for their feed and upkeep.
