Three baby orphaned goats who died over the Easter weekend may have been killed by food given to them by visitors.

One of the youngsters died from an infection at Finkley Down Farm in Andover- the other two are believed to have been fed something different from their usual diet.

Post mortem examinations ruled out overfeeding as a cause of their death.

The goats had come to Finkley Down from a farm in the New Forest a year ago.

The farm provides goat feed to give to the animals and has several signs asking people not to feed them outside food.
