Retired Ferryhill miner's poultry stolen
A RETIRED miner who has kept rare breed poultry and pigeons for most of his life has had some of his beloved birds stolen.
Eight half-grown Croad Langshan chickens, which are black with long tails and feathered feet, were stolen from a smallholding ran by Thomas Myers, of Ferryhill.
Tools used to clean the site at East Howle Stables, Ferryhill, were also taken during the weekend of Saturday, August 24.
The 76-year-old said: “All of my life I’ve kept rare breeds and used to show them and horses regularly.
“I don’t compete not but it remains a hobby and I don’t like to think of them being stolen, it isn’t about how expensive they’d be to buy but that I’ve bred and looked after them myself.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Ken Barclay at Durham police, on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800-555111.
