  13. Sheep illegally slaughtered and butchered in field

    Twenty-four sheep were slaughtered and butchered in a field in Warwickshire earlier this week, police say.

    This new incident means that since the beginning of the year, 103 sheep have been reported butchered in fields and 74 sheep have been reported stolen from farms in the area.

    The latest attack happened in a field near Harborough Magna near Rugby overnight between Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Officers are appealing for the public's help to identify where the meat may be being sold.
