Dorset Police joined officers from Wiltshire Police and Hampshire Police on Operation Galileo, a national operation aimed at making life even more difficult for hare coursers.

Inspector Chrissie Plumley of the Rural Crime Team said: “Our rural communities play a vital part in helping us gather intelligence, and we really value their support.

“Any vehicles identified through intelligence, our available resources such as ANPR and the Force drone unit, or that were suspected to be used in rural crime, were proactively stopped and searched as part of the operation.
