Police are investigating after four lambs were killed and three others injured in livestock attacks in rural Denbighshire.

Both incidents took place in the Bryneglwys area, with the first occurring on Monday, August 14th, where four lambs were killed and three injured.

The second attack took place nearby on Wednesday, August 30th, where two spaniels were seen attacking sheep in fields off Bryn Orsedd to Rhoslydan Road.
