Three men were interviewed at the roadside in relation to reports of hare coursing on land near Burton Pidsea/Roos. A Traffic Offence Report ticket issued to the driver for an unsafe vehicle. All three received a Section 35 Dispersal Order directing them to leave the East Riding County.

Four males stopped and interviewed for poaching offences in the area of Sunk Island

Five men were interviewed and summoned to court for poaching offences in the Wetwang area and directed to leave the County of East Riding under the Section 35 of the Anti Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014

Humberside Police cannot tackle this or any other problem alone and lots of individuals and agencies continue to have an important input in to Operation Galileo, in particular members of Farm Watch groups and residents of our rural communities.
