three inseparable white Campbell breed ducks have been stolen from their coop in Meltham.

Police say the ducks, called The Girls by their “devastated” owners, were taken from a garden on Thick Hollins at some point between 8.15pm on Tuesday and 6.30am on Wednesday.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “The ducks are just over two years old and go everywhere together.

“The Campbell breed is flightless, so they have not flown away. There was also no sign of an attack by a fox.

“If you have seen the ducks, or have any information about where they might be, please get in touch with us on 101, and quote 13/16/188286.”

The Campbell was bred by a Mrs Adele Campbell in Gloucester. The breed was first shown in 1898. Mrs Campbell had mated her Mallard and Pencilled Runner to create a Khaki coloured duck.
