Six people have been arrested after wild boars were released during a burglary at a farm in Bridgend county.

More than 40 of the animals could be roaming the area after they were released from their pen following a break-in near Maesteg, at 12:30 BST on Sunday.

South Wales Police said the farmer holds a dangerous animals licence and had the necessary fencing to prevent escapes.

Scott Passmore, co-founder of the UK Wild Boar Association, explains what you should do if you meet a wild boar.
