The owners of a 33year old Shetland pony in Preston  have been left ' absolutely devastated' after the animal was stolen.
Police officers are now appealing for information from the public after the Shetland pony was stolen from a paddock, near Staithes Road, Preston.

Peter is described as a Standard Shetland Pony - 40 inches high to the base of his neck, Chestnut colour with blonde mane and tail. A White star on forehead with a Small white snip down centre of nose
Enquiries in relation to the incident are ongoing and officers are urging anyone with any information or video footage that may aid their investigation to get in touch.
PCSO Darren Bainton from the Holderness Community Police Team, said: “Peter’s owners have been left absolutely devastated by this incident and we are keen to do all we can to trace the people responsible and reunite him with their rightful owners.
“Peter is regularly visited by walkers in the local area, meaning that he is well known by the local community.
 “The stables and paddock where Peter was taken from are in a semi-rural area, and in order to have accessed the farm it is likely that the offenders will have travelled along Staithes Road or Neat Marsh Lane.
“Therefore, as part of our investigation we are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area on the night of the incident and believes they may have seen anything suspicious.
“The same goes for anyone with any CCTV or dashcam footage which may aid our investigation.
“We urge anyone who has any information, no matter how small, or know the Peter’s whereabouts or is offered the chance to buy Peter, to call us on 101.”
Anyone with information or footage that may be relevant to the investigation is asked to call Humberside Police on 101, quoting 16/72507/21, give the details via our website or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
