THE theft of more than 250 sheep from land in Powys is being investigated by police.

The breeding ewes were stolen from an area known as Llysdinam common hill, Newbridge-on-Wye, near Builth Wells. One problem might have is that the sheep have gone missing sometime between the summer of 2021 and January this year!
