More than 400 budgies, worth over £60,000, have been stolen from a breeder's home.

Thieves cut wires to security lights before breaking into the locked aviary in Romsey, Hampshire, between 22:00 BST on Sunday and 04:45 Monday.

Police said the birds were stolen in special transportation cages that belonged to 74-year-old Mick Freeborn. Only one was left behind in a cage.

A 25-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the theft.
