A family has spoken of its heartbreak as three beloved pet chickens were stolen from their home.
Hilary Sutton had her family returned home from work and school to find that 36-week-old chickens Edna, Gertrude and Betty had been taken from their chicken coop.
Feathers and traces of the cut wire ties to the chicken coop were found lying on the ground at the home in The Street, Carlton Colville.
Mrs Sutton said her 14-year-old son Oliver, who looked after the chickens, had been left devastated by the theft.
'He just stood there crying,' she said.
