Four people have been released without charge by police investigating the theft of nine micro-piglets from a Surrey property.

The animals, which are worth about £700 each, were taken from an address in Capel in March after the owner had advertised them for sale.

A 17-year-old girl, two men aged 21 and 48, from Egham and a woman, 22, from Staines, have been released from bail.

Surrey Police earlier released an 18-year-old man from Shepperton on bail.

Officers recovered four of the piglets from properties in Shepperton and Virginia Water but are still trying to find the other five.

The animals who have not yet been found include three black sow micro-piglets, one of which is named Squiggle.

The other two missing animals are pink and black spotted piglets called Dotty and Spotty.
