Sheep rustling alert in Swansea, Amman and Lliw Valleys

Farmers in the Swansea area are calling for more police action over sheep rustling which they say has cost them about £30,000 over the past 18 months.

The West Glamorgan Commoners' Association says seven of its members have lost 350 sheep in the Swansea, Amman and Lliw Valleys in that period.

A farm insurer says livestock thefts cost Welsh farmers £700,000 in 2011 and it expects a similar figure for 2012.

South Wales Police said they were planning to take targeted action. Owain Evans reports
