Police are urging witnesses to come forward after 25 illegally slaughtered sheep were discovered at a farm in the Thornby area in the early hours of this morning (Monday, 9 September).

Operation Stock is the ongoing investigation into incidents of sheep butchery and theft, with the latest incident discovered in a field off the Welford Road at about 8am today.

Inspector Tracy Moore, who leads on rural crime for Northamptonshire Police, said: “Unsurprisingly, the owner of these sheep is devastated and my officers are working around the clock to bring whoever is responsible for these monstrous acts to justice.

“The pace of this investigation is unrelenting and proactive officers continue to patrol the county’s rural areas both day and night."
