Norfolk buzzard poisoning gamekeeper sentenced

A gamekeeper has been given a suspended sentence for what wildlife groups are calling the worst case of bird of prey poisoning recorded in England.

Allen Lambert, who worked on the Stody Estate in Norfolk, was convicted of deliberately killing 10 buzzards and a sparrowhawk and possessing items used to prepare poison baits.

His trial heard he wanted to protect pheasants he was rearing.

Sian Lloyd reports.
