Police from four East Devon towns have joined forces in a two-day sting in a bid to tackle rural crime.

Officers based in Honiton, Sidmouth, Seaton and Axminster recently teamed up in marked and unmarked vehicles, to patrol country lanes, farmland and a host of East Devon rural locations.

In a clamp-down on crime, police stopped late-night vehicles, agricultural machinery, tractors and motorists traveling along rural roads in a clamp-down on crime.

State-of-the art technology was used by police to identify stolen goods and machinery.
