About 20 of this year's lambs (six months to a year old) were recovered on 24 August 2015.

Police say they do not appear to have ever been tagged and are of a Texel or Hampshire Down breed or similar.

Anyone who has any information about the lambs, or have had any stolen recently, is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police.

A woman from Harrogate is preparing to embark on a year-long sailing challenge, despite having little previous experience of the sport.

Sue Ball is taking part in the Clipper Round the World Race, which will begin on Sunday 30th August.

The race is unusual because the crews are a mixture of novice sailors, led by experienced skippers.

This will be a tough challenge; fewer people can claim to have sailed round the world than have climbed Everest. Sue, who is a nursery manager, told us it was an opportunity not to be missed.

I wanted a challenge. I've never had a gap year. I decided I was a but old to go backpacking round youth hostels. I can go with a group of people that I like and i just wanted to push myself to the limit.
