Horses targeted in shotgun attack
One horse has had to be put down and vets fear two more may face the same fate after a shooting attack in Surrey.

A grey stallion and two Shetland ponies were peppered with shotgun pellets at a field near East Wyke Farm in Wyke Avenue, Ash on Wednesday night.

The two remaining animals, which were seriously injured, are being treated by vets who discovered the numerous pellets when they were X-rayed.

Surrey Police have appealed for anyone with information to contact them.
