Schoolgirl finds severed pig's head
A horrified schoolgirl came home to find a severed pig's head dumped on her doorstep in Cornwall.
The 14-year-old girl found the gruesome animal remains wrapped in a plastic bin bag outside her family's home in Camborne.
Her parents reported it to police, describing the incident as "like something out of a horror movie".
Officers are investigating whether the grim find could be connected to a court case that finished on the same day.

Mark Entwistle, 35, of Hopes Drive, Mount Hawke, one of the girl's relatives, was last week sentenced to eight months in prison at Truro Crown Court, suspended for two years, for causing the death of a cyclist by careless driving.
The cyclist died after a collision between his bike and a van as he was riding along the eastbound carriageway of the A30 on October 5, 2012.
Police have visited butchers and meat wholesalers in a bid to trace the culprit.
PCSO Andrew Taylor said: "This in itself is an unsettling and disturbing occurrence, however it is moreso by the fact that it was a schoolgirl that found it."
