CCTV footage has been released after a number of goats were stolen in Wheathampstead.

Eleven goats were stolen from a freeholding off Kingfisher Close between 6pm on Tuesday, May 28 and 1pm on Wednesday, May 29, causing a loss of nearly £4,000 to the owner.

Herts police had previously released still CCTV images, but have now made footage available to the public.
