Farmers say they're becoming increasingly concerned about a "growing level of lawlessness" in rural parts of Lincolnshire.
It comes just weeks after Lincolnshire Police showcased their rural crime strategy at a farm near Lincoln (pictured).
The force says it's seen reports of hare coursing, an illegal sport involving dogs chasing hares, more than half since 2016.
But the National Farmers' Union (NFU) says they're still concerned about the theft of large farming machinery and trespassing on agricultural buildings.
Police say they've requested fuller access to farm land to help tackle crime.
Granting Lincolnshire Police full unfettered access to our farms sends out a signal to the criminal fraternity that we are all watching and also it provides some comfort to those of us in remote locations that someone actually cares.”
