It has been confirmed that more than 200 animals have been removed from a farm in Ripley.

Surrey Police alongside the RSPCA carried out a raid at Hurst Farm along Portsmouth Road yesterday (9 January).

An RSPCA spokesperson said:

“The RSPCA-led operation saw 204 animals removed, including 123 horses, eight donkeys and 59 dogs, due to welfare concerns.

“The investigation is now ongoing so we can’t go into any further detail at this time.

"However, we would like to thank Surrey Police, Guildford Borough Council, Bucks and Surrey Trading Standards, Bransby Horses, Redwings, The Horse Trust, The Donkey Sanctuary, World Horse Welfare, Dogs Trust and the vets who attended for their assistance.”
