Hampshire Constabulary have now said that Lulu and Dolly, who are nanny goats, have now been found.

They were spotted by a member of the public trotting, ironically, along Trotts Lane in Marchwood on Friday, May 29.

Police Staff Investigator Melody Manning said: ‘The owner was so delighted to be reunited with Lulu and Dolly. They are affectionate and friendly animals and were very much valued and missed by all.

‘We don't know yet where they were being held and by whom so we are still appealing for anyone who has any information about this crime to please get in touch.

‘These much loved animals were stolen after the barn was broken into and Lulu and Dolly were held for ten days - so we are still very keen to find those responsible.’

If you have any information, please call 101 and quote reference 44200177169.
