A MAN arrested on suspicion of sheep molesting has had his bail extended.

Police arrested the 27-year-old, from Sydenham, on July 18 but have now extended his bail for the second time until next Monday, October 6.

The man's twin brother, from Dulwich, was also arrested on suspicion of bestiality on July 17 but police are no longer investigating him for that offence.

They have, however, bailed him while they investigate drugs found at his home.

The attacks on sheep are believed to have been going on for months around Tongs Farm, Botany Bay Lane, Chislehurst.

Penetration of or by an animal, known as bestiality, is illegal and carries a sentence of up to two years imprisonment.
