A farm in Leicestershire has lost 54 cows in a suspected poisoning.
An investigation is underway after farmer Tom Rawson discovered dozens of dead livestock at the site in Houghton on the Hill, near Leicester, on Tuesday June 19th.
A team of five vets worked through the night with the business owners to try and stabilise the remainder of the herd.
He believes the deaths are due to "external water source contamination" and described it as his worst night as a farmer.
The fire service was called to deliver thousands of litres of uncontaminated water to the farm, as an alternative supply for the cows.
