Farmer loses cows to mine shafts

When you see a headline like that you just know the story comes from Shropshire. Sure enough:
A Shropshire farmer says he has lost 15 cattle after they fell into mine shafts on his land and died.
Jim Roberts, who has farmed in Little Wenlock for 40 years, said he lost 12 heifers and three bulls when the ground opened up under their hoofs.
This one is from the BBC Shropshire pages rather than the Shropshire Star.
