GOLFERS are being left teed off by a feathered fiend who is stealing their balls from the fairways.

For the last few weeks, a black crow has repeatedly swooped on the 10th hole at High Throston Golf Club, in Hart Lane, Hartlepool.

Members of the club usually like to see plenty of birdies scored on the course, but are growing tired of the real thing disturbing their rounds.
