The guinea pigs that were found dumped in woodland at Heysham.

A local resident said she had seen a man moments before walking down the same lane and returning empty handed.

Whilst talking with the resident on Meldon Road on Sunday, a dog walker approached after coming from the same footpath and asked if police had been looking for a white hamster.

Officers then discovered a second guinea pig had also been dumped.

The guinea pigs were subsequently rehomed.
