Farm Watch Coordinator's Update
The number of animals reported as loose on the highway this week has dramatically increased with a total of 107. This included 105 sheep, 1 goat and 1 horse. Please continue to check roadside hedges and fences on a daily basis, including those where a railway line passes by.

Over the past week there have been a number of reports of works vehicles being broken into overnight and tools being stolen. Where possible all vehicles should be emptied before being parked up for the night. Alternatively, consider backing vans up against brick walls or block any side doors with other vehicles to restrict entry. 

Finally, I would encourage you to report any suspicious or unusual activity at your property via the non-emergency number on 101 or via the Sussex Police website. A vehicle of persons entering your farm and then seemingly leaving when you have noticed them may not seem significant; but your report could place them in the area at the time and be of use if an incident has taken place elsewhere locally. Any reports of unusual or suspicious activity help us to build a picture of your local area. 

Kindest regards 
Phillip
