Van load of turkeys goes missing
Police are investigating the theft of van load of 150 frozen turkeys from a farm in Cornwall.

The owners of Gobblers Farm in Trebant, St Breward said the turkeys had been loaded into a van on Friday and were due to be delivered to a shop.

They were reported missing the next day when the turkeys did not arrive.

The farm estimated the value of the turkeys to be about 1,200. The owners said any customers who pre-ordered turkeys would be compensated.

The van was described as a white transit-style vehicle.

The driver was aged about 30 and was about 5ft 10ins tall, with black curly hair and wearing a hooded jacket and jeans.

A police spokeswoman said the van driver was not known to the farm.
