Dead horses found near Hatfield

Police are trying to find out how the bodies of two horses ended up in a field close to Wild Hill near Hatfield. It's believed the bodies were dumped between Saturday January 26th and Monday January 28th.

The mare and the filly were both thin but do not appear to have been neglected. Police believe they were driven to the area in a vehicle and are working with the RSPCA to identify the owners.
