Police and gamekeepers team up to protect deer

PC Chris Fearn from Derbyshire Police said that an increasing number of poachers with guns and hunting dogs had been illegally shooting game.

He said: “Since the clocks went back, two deer have been killed and more than 70 pheasants and partridges taken. This is a sophisticated set-up — not someone taking the odd bird for themselves.”
