This sort of offence acts as a timely reminder that when you park your vehicle at local beauty spots please do not leave anything on display for the "thief to see"

The padlock used to secure the gate was removed and a further two gates were lifted off their hinges. Three horses are kept in the field were removed but gladly all three have been found in the area and are safe and well. A rather strange offence but if you see people "fiddling" with gates or locks please jot down the number of the vehicle they are using. It may well be needed in the future if they were not the rightful owners of the property.
