Farm Watch Coordinator's Update

This week there have been 14 reported cases of animals loose on the highway. This was made up of 11 sheep, 2 cows and a horse. Sadly, as you will see below, one of the cows was hit by a car in Hailsham. Whilst it appears at this stage that the cow survived, the car was severely damaged. Please do continue to check your roadside hedges and fences on a daily basis. 

Break-ins of barns, outbuildings, garages and sheds still seem to be popular choices. Please ensure that all property on your land is secure and consider fitting security lights and CCTV where possible.

Kindest regards
