A pregnant ewe has died after a drone illegally flew overhead.

Gloucestershire police's rural crime team have blamed the drone, which was flying in a restricted airspace zone near Sharpness, for the sheep's death.

A spokesperson said: "Sheep can easily die of shock/miscarry if pregnant. Give them the space they need.

"We're working closely with the NFU (National Farmers' Union) to combat this issue." Anyone with information should call 101 and quote incident number 280 of December 2.
