The theft happened from a field alongside the B1125 at Westleton, near Leiston, between 9pm on Sunday and 8am today.

It is thought the pigs – each weighing around 100kg – were killed before being dragged from the field, not far from the Hinton five ways junction, and loaded into a vehicle.

Anyone who may have noticed any unusual or suspicious activity in the area should call Suffolk police on 101 as soon as possible.
