There has been a recent increase in the theft of 12v batteries from farms in the area, if you see anything suspicious or anyone that you do not recognise visiting your farm please bear this in mind.
The NPT are working together with the Rural Affairs Team in order to deal with reported rural crime, please ensure that you contact us and report any issues that you are experiencing.
We have received reports of hare coursing which is illegal and causes damage to farm land therefore we will deal positively with anyone that is identified as taking part in this activity.
Please call 101 or 999 in an emergency to get in touch with us or to report any crime or information.
