POLICE have stepped up patrols following a rise in livestock worrying.

Sussex Police Rural Crime Team has increased its presence in and around Telscombe in an attempt to combat the issue.

“We've seen an increase in reports of livestock worrying around Telscombe,” a spokeswoman said.

“We're stepping up patrols and will challenge anyone whose dogs are not under close control in agricultural fields, as per legislation.

“Always safest to keep your dogs on a lead.”

Earlier this year, dog owners were warned to keep their pets under control during lambing season amid a fear of sheep worrying.
