Can we please ask the rural community to be vigilant to any movement of livestock especially during the hours of darkness. Call police should you see any suspicious activity. Can we also please remind people to keep their dogs on leads whilst walking through livestock due to a number of sheep being attacked and killed recently. No matter how small or insignificant people may think information is, it may be a vital piece of a jigsawthat helps us fill in the gaps and either prevent a crime or bring offenders to justice

Patrols increased to cover all the Mendips as this is ongoing
