TWO lambs which were stolen from a farm outside of Bridport have been found and returned to their owner.

Following enquiries by Dorset Rural Crime Team two stolen lambs have been recovered in rural Bridport.

One man has been arrested and a vehicle has been seized.

The two young lambs, Elton and Ellie were stolen after a fence was broken through sometime between 4.30am and 7am on Tuesday, March 26.

Owner Amy Wright said the shock of the theft of her lambs left her 12-year-old daughter "crying herself to sleep".

A spokesperson for Dorset Police Rural Crime Team said: "Both lambs have been returned to their grateful owner, with new security measures in place to prevent any future thefts."
