Burglars steal emu in wheelie bin

`An emu has been stolen from an animal centre by burglars who then hid it in a wheelie bin to make their getaway.

Volunteers at Lords House Farm in the Rishton area of Blackburn, Lancashire, said they fear the emu will have died.

Burglars took the bird from the farm, which offers riding and animal therapy, then hid it in a bin stolen from a neighbouring property.

Lancashire police said the bin was pushed for almost a mile, before being abandoned and the emu taken.’
