A pair of white goats caused a stir after wandering off from their farm in Ripley - and into the workshop of a neighbouring firm.

The animals were reported missing by the owner of the farm on Whiteley Road on Thursday, February 13, at 10am.

Police say they were able to put the farmer in touch with nearby TC Fabrications, which had reported seeing the roaming billies wander into its workshop area at about 5.30pm the previous evening. A worker at the firm, Luke Maltby, said: “We’ve seen them here before actually, they’ve been in on a Saturday, they’re not a nuisance. I think my boss wanted to take them home!”
