Charges of poaching against three men were dropped after a landowner said he did not wish the cases to continue.

Prosecutor Victoria Brankovic told magistrates the landowner, Patrick Duffy, made a retraction statement in which he said he wasn’t threatened or intimidated in any way “and he wants the defendants to be given a second chance”.

Jack Richardson (23), of Middle Marsh Road, Holbeach St Marks, Daniel Devall (47), of Fairfield, Herstmonceux, East Sussex, and Henry Devall (23), of Bidford Road, Bromley, denied poaching at Leadenhall Road, Holbeach St Marks on February 16 last year. Their cases were dismissed at Boston magistrates’ Court.
