MORE sheep have been slaughtered in Warwickshire fields.

The killing and theft follows a string of more than 20 incidents recorded last year.

Three men arrested, charged and remanded in custody following a police operation known as ‘Hillman’ are set to stand trail in March.

But on Sunday two more sheep in a field near Willoughby in Rugby were butchered before being taken.

Police swooped on a property in Daventry where they found and seized items including bags of raw meat.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 or report it anonymously by calling 0800 783 0137.
