Thieves made off with a seasonal haul when they stole turkeys from a farm. They took eight oven-ready birds, worth around £800, from a large chiller at a farm in Ocle Pychard, Herefordshire. West Mercia Police said the incident happened at the rural property, which lies off the A417 between Leominster and Newtown crossroads, between midnight on Saturday and 6am Sunday.

A police spokesman said: "The eight turkeys that have been stolen were each packed in their own individual box ready for cooking at Christmas. The turkeys were all 'Kelly Bronze' birds and each box was labelled with this name. Six of the turkeys weighed 8kg and the other two weighed 9kg. The total value of the stolen turkeys is thought to be as much as £800.

"Officers investigating this theft are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen any suspicious vehicles in the Ocle Pychard area."
