Shop the hare coursers

POLICE are encouraging Sutton Bridge residents to dial 999 the moment they see suspected hare coursers trespassing on land in the village.

Coun Michael Booth told the parish council: “It’s not just people and dogs walking on the land – they are using 4x4s, going in fields and doing a considerable amount of damage.

“We are seeing hares torn apart thrown in the bottom of the dyke.”

PC Laura Griggs said police will attend on blue lights.
