Five sheep have been stolen from a farm in the Borders.

The three Cheviot and two Blackface sheep were taken some time between Tuesday 22 and Monday 28 July from Upper Kidston Farm near Peebles.

Oficers have appealed for anyone who witnessed suspicious activity to contact them.

They said a truck or van would have been needed to remove the animals from the farm.

Insp Tony Hodges, of Police Scotland, said: "The theft of these animals has resulted in a loss of over £500 for the farmer and we are keen to hear from anyone who remembers seeing any suspicious activity on or around the farm in the past couple of weeks.

"A vehicle would have been required to transport the animals and we would urge members of the public who saw a truck or van removing sheep from the farm to contact police immediately."
