Burnham beach donkeys join seafront traffic as vehicle breaks down

Bemused seafront walkers wondered whether the owner of Burnham-On-Sea's beach donkeys had introduced a new seafront route to walk her animals on Monday (June 30th) after seven were seen wandering along The Esplanade, as pictured here.

Yet in fact the owner had actually got into difficulty when her horse box had broken down further along the seafront.

Since the donkeys could not be left in the vehicle in sweltering hot conditions, they were led by hand along The Esplanade to the beach while the vehicle was attended to by a roadside recovery service.
