Watch: Activists who stole three lambs from the King’s estate have handed themselves in to police

Animal rights activists who stole three lambs from the King's Sandringham estate during a night-time raid have handed themselves in to police. The trio - from the Animal Rising group - filmed themselves going on to Appleton Farm, at West Newton, near King's Lynn, Norfolk, to take the animals from a field.They then drove off with the creatures, which they claim were destined for slaughter. The women said they had "rescued" the sheep to allow them to "live their lives to the fullest". The activists - named as Rosa, Sarah and Rose and all in their 20s and 30s - then travelled to Berkshire and posed for photographs in front of Windsor Castle. They then handed themselves in to local police, who arrested them on suspicion of theft.
