The thieves stole 1,500 geese

Geese thought to be worth up to £100,000 have been stolen by a criminal gang in what has been described as a 'audacious theft'.
The animals, which totalled 1,500, were taken yesterday from land in the Bawburgh, Norfolk area between 3am and 8am. Norfolk Police have appealed to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area.
John Newton, National Farmers' Union county adviser, said the birds were 'clearly stolen to order', adding: "They’re not the kind of numbers you could sell down your local pub."
A police spokesman said: “Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the Bawburgh area between the times stated, or in particular from anyone who may have been offered any geese for sale.”
Anyone with information about the theft should contact Norfolk police or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
