A gaggle of geese gone!

Rustlers have stolen a gaggle of Christmas geese worth up to £100,000 in an overnight raid on a farm.

A police spokesman said: “Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the Bawburgh area near Norwich on the 27th November, or in particular from anyone who may have been offered any geese for sale.”

NFU county adviser John Newton described the theft as “audacious” and said the birds were “clearly stolen to order”.

He added: “They’re not the kind of numbers you could sell down your local pub.”
