A rare pig belonging to the Princess Royal was savaged by a wild boar which got into its pen in Gloucestershire.

The princess reportedly told a conference of farmers that her Gloucestershire Old Spot boar was killed on Tuesday night.

It was nearby on the M4 earlier this week that a wild boar caused a car accident in which 47-year-old Raymond Green died.
