Since she began breeding pedigree Hampshire Township in 2005,


the farmer has never seen anything like it.


What do you think about the person that has done this?


Who could go in and brutally attack a little animal -


it was only a baby, three weeks old - or any animal, for that fact.


I still can't believe it, to think what he went through.

Time for the weather now - here's Emily.


We have got unsettled weather for the week ahead,


also very mild weather, and some dry weather for a time


tonight after the earlier rain has cleared, but it leaves behind a lot


of cloud, some patchy drizzle, also mist and fog to watch out for.


These are the minimum overnight temperatures though, very mild,


So a mild, misty and murky start to Monday morning.

and murky in the north. Maybe freezing fog in places. It will be


cold in the glands of Scotland. It could be down to -10 degrees, it's


already about -5 or 6 degrees right now.
