The National Farmers’ Union (NFU) has today launched a new service for farmers and the public to give information anonymously about rural crime, in partnership with the charity Crimestoppers.
The “Rural Crime Reporting Line” is part of the NFU’s ongoing work to tackle the serious issues surrounding criminal behaviour on farms and in the wider countryside.
By ringing 0800 783 0137 or visiting www.ruralcrimereportingline.uk, farmers, rural businesses and the public can anonymously give information about crime relating to:
• large-scale, industrial fly-tipping
• hare coursing
• machinery theft; or
• livestock theft
