Seventy-nine sheep worth thousands of pounds’ stolen from moorland   

Forty-one Rough Fell sheep and 38 lambs from a farm in Castleton have gone missing from open moorland in the last few month.

 

Most of the sheep have yellow tags bearing the number 127821 and have their left ear notched, with two blue stripes across their back.

 

Anyone with information about the sheep, especially if found in a different location or offered for sale, has been urged to contact PC Wayne Leith via email wayne.leith@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk or quoting reference number 12200165977.
