Chickens and ducks shot dead on Lingdale allotment

More than 20 chickens and ducks have been shot dead at an allotment in Teesside.

Cleveland Police said the birds on the Farndale Gardens site, in Lingdale, were targeted some time on Friday night.

Officers believe an airgun rifle was used in the "senseless" attack and said more than 20 birds were shot dead.

They are appealing for anyone who saw anybody acting suspiciously in the area on Friday afternoon to get in touch.
