Harris hawk stolen from Morecambe aviary

A Harris hawk has been stolen from a bolted aviary in the back yard of a house in Lancashire.

The bird, which is worth about £200, was stolen from Euston Road, Morecambe, on Monday.

The hawk, named Tilly, is nine years old and has two bells on each leg and a ring on its left leg.

The offenders had scaled an 8ft (2.5m) wall to get into the yard and police are keen to speak to any potential witnesses.
