The National Farmers Union Scotland are warning people that rural crime will not be tolerated.

It comes after 250 sheep and lambs were stolen from a farm near Moffat.

The animals, worth around £20,000 were taken during the night and there's been no trace of them since.

The owner of the sheep has been farming the land for decades and was left devastated by the theft. NFU Scotland are urging everyone to be vigilant:

Although this isn't a common occurrence in Dumfries and Galloway, it is a reminder for everyone to be aware of what's going on around them in the countryside.

Farmers need to make sure everything is securely locked and any members of the public who notice suspicious behaviour are asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.

This is a terrible case of rural crime and difficult for all involved."

– Teresa Dougll, NFU Scotland
