Crime fighting

Welsh police are recruiting farmers in the war on crime.

Members of the Young Farmers Club are working with Dyfed-Powys Police to hand out special vehicle excise licence holders to shoppers at farmers markets and shows throughout the region.

The licences are designed to urge motorists to report any suspicious events or activities they might witness.

Stuart Eckley, community safety sergeant for Powys, said: "We would rather check out 100 reports to find everything is in order, rather than miss the one call that will lead us to detecting crime."
