On the lam, farmer’s missing stock found

The missing lambs were hiding in plain sight with another flock.

The 50 lambs reported stolen from a Fairhill, Marlborough, paddock have been found.

The sheep had escaped and merged with another farmer’s flock, says a police spokesperson.

"The combined flocks had been moved to another property before the farmer realised the missing sheep were included.

"Police would like to thank members of the public for their help."
