Young farmers in Cumbria are to be offered the opportunity to play a key role in helping to keep farming and rural communities safe.

Training will be provided in forensic property marking, and a 'Trespass scheme' which had been used previously to prevent people who have been found on private land and suspected of being involved in rural crime.

The initiative was developed by Cumbria Neighbourhood Watch Association (NWA) and Cumbria YFC County Chair.

Joe Murray, Chair of Cumbria Neighbourhood watch, said:"Farms and the wider rural communities in Cumbria have increasing become targets of criminals in recent times."

Robbie Tuer, Cumbria YFC County Chair, said: "Our young farmers are the present and the future of Cumbria and will play an active and vital role in the development of farming and agriculture in the years to come.
