Police called off search for 'stolen' flock of sheep after they were found sheltering in nearby wood

One hundred sheep worth around £10,000 which were thought to have been stolen have been found sheltering in a wood.

Police launched an investigation after the apparent "theft" was reported to them on October 10.

It was thought they had been stolen between September 26 and October 3 from fields around High Stenries farm at Waterbeck in Dumfries and Galloway.

However the farmer found the sheep sheltering in a nearby wood. The animals, Texel cross and Cheviot mule cross sheep, were safe and well.
