Exmouth police are warning dog owners to keep their pets on a lead when walking through fields of newborn lambs.

The message comes after several lambs were killed by a dog as it was being walked on farmland at Bicton.

The police said one lamb was killed outright by the dog, while two others had to be humanely destroyed by a vet.

The owner of the dog was likely to be made subject of a dog control order, the police said

Officers said dog walkers should use ‘common sense and courtesy’ when exercising their pets near livestock.

The police say drivers ignoring red traffic lights on one of Exmouth’s busiest junctions face injury or accident.
