Thieves steal 30-year-old Shetland pony from animal sanctuary

This is Eric, a 30-year-old Shetland pony, stolen from Dorney Animal Sanctuary in Lake End Road, Taplow.

Sanctuary staff noticed Eric missing when they went to check on him at 7am this morning and are desperate for him to be returned.

They are increasingly worried as he has a broken shoulder and needs regular medication. Eric's stable friend is also very distraught as they have been together for a long time.
