A gang of rustlers have stolen 500 pregnant sheep worth more than £60,000 and Norfolk Police are appealing for witnesses.

The sheep were stolen from High Elm Farm in East Tuddenham, Norfolk, on Tuesday at approximately 9pm.

The offenders stole the sheep from a field on Sandy Lane, just off the A47.

Police would like to speak to any witnesses who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area on Tuesday evening including people or vehicles, or from anyone who may have any dash cam footage of the area around the time of the incident.

Farmer Jack Peacock, 29, said: “We’re seven or eight weeks off lambing now and they can lose them if stressed".

Enquiries are ongoing and anyone with any information should contact Norfolk Police on 101, quoting Op Solve and crime number 36/3983/19. Alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
