A horse-drawn carriage has overturned in Valletta after the horse pulling the carriage "slipped" for an unknown reason, police have said.

At around 5:30 Monday evening, the carriage ended up hanging off of the barrier as the horse lay on the floor, before getting back up, apparently unharmed, according to the police.

No-one was harmed in the incident.
