Poachers issued with notice by police in Wensleydale

Two men suspected of poaching in Wensleydale were ordered to leave the area by police at the weekend.

The North-East men were stopped by Richmondshire police in No Man’s Moor Lane between Finghall and Thornton Steward.

They had a lurcher dog with them.

The men were issued with a 24-hour dispersal notice to leave the area immediately.

Breaching a dispersal order is an offence and could lead to a criminal prosecution.
