A newborn micro pig stolen from a farm then found abandoned in a box has died.

Police said the piglet was grabbed by a woman who threw water at its mother before fleeing Newham Grange Country Farm in Middlesbrough on Saturday.

The four-day-old black pig was later found in a box on a doorstep in Arthur Terrace, New Marske, on Monday.

It has since died and police are appealing for anyone who has any information on the theft to get in touch.

The woman was at the farm with two other adults, a child and a baby.

She had been asked to leave the farm after entering the pens on a number of occasions.

Police said a guinea pig was also stolen at around 16:15 GMT when the group left the farm in a silver Ford Focus.
