Police are appealing for information after four sheep were left dead and a lamb orphaned in a dog attack in the north of the Island.

The incident happened in the Glen Dhoo area just off the track leading from the Ballaugh Plantation.

Officers say it's the third year in a row that sheep have died in this area.

The attack comes just a couple of days after an appeal from the Manx National Farmers Union for dog owners to keep their pets under control around livestock.

Anyone who can help police find the dog and owner responsible is asked to contact Police Headquarters on 631212.
