Three women accused of stealing lambs from the King’s estate will face a trial.

Sarah Foy, 23, of North Street, Alfreton Derbyshire, Rose Patterson, 34, of no fixed address and Rosa Sharkey, 23, of Mayville Estate, London, appeared via a video link at Lynn’s Magistrates’ Court today.

They all pleaded not guilty to one account of stealing three lambs from a field in West Newton on May 25, three counts of causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal and three counts of failing to record movement of an animal.

Prosecutor Lesla Small said the trio were members of the activist group Animal Rising, which had posted a video on the social media platform X,previously known as Twitter, back in May of lambs being picked up and taken from the field.

They will face trial at Norwich Crown Court on October 26 and have been released on conditional bail, with orders not to visit Norfolk unless for any court matters.

All three women have also been ordered not to enter any royal park or estate where any farming takes place.
