Can you help police find the owner or driver of this van which was involved in a hit and run accident that killed a lamb?

Police have also issued a reminder that Section 170 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 states that legally you must report hitting sheep to the police and, if you do hit an animal (dogs/horses/cows/pigs/goats/sheep/donkeys and mules) on the road, you must follow a legal procedure by stopping and remaining at the scene until the RSPCA or the animal’s owner arrives.

Make sure you are safe, look out for other vehicles and hazards and be careful if approaching the animal as it may lash out if injured.
