TWO stolen goats called Lulu and Dolly have been found - ten days after they were snatched.

The friendly nanny goats, who are mother and daughter, were among nine goats that were taken from a barn at Lee, near Romsey, earlier this month.

Seven of the goats were later recovered after they were seen wandering along a road in Nursling but the two females remained missing.

Now Hampshire police have revealed that Lulu and Dolly were found by a member of the public in Trotts Lane, Marchwood.

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. Lulu and Dolly were held for ten days so we are very keen to find those responsible.”

The nine goats were stolen between 5.35pm on May 18 and 8am the next day. Lulu and Dolly were found last Friday.
