MORE than a dozen pregnant sheep have been stolen from fields near Knighton.

Dyfed-Powys Police is investigating the theft of the 15 pregnant mile ewes, which a spokesperson said are carrying twins.

They were stolen from enclosed fields in the Llangunllo area, near Knighton, earlier this month, but police did not give a more specific time.

All sheep have tagged ears, and were pitch market with an orange J on their rump, the police spokesperson added.

Anyone with information should contact Dyfed-Powys Police on 101, or details can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
