April Fools Day twitter blunder for West Yorkshire Police mounted section



Have your say

West Yorkshire Police chiefs were left red-faced after its mounted section tweeted today - April Fools’ Day - that it was “closing down due to cutbacks”.

Bosses were forced to issue comment denying the mounted section would be closing and said inquiries were now looking into how it had come to be posted on the social network.

The offending tweet was posted just after 8am from the @WYPHorses account - which is the official twitter page for the mounted section.
