Sussex Country Watch Bulletin

Reported loose animals on the highway this week is 46.
This is made up by 35 Sheep, 10 Cows and 1 Horse.
Please check your boundary hedges and fences especially those that border
Highways and Railways at least once every day.
 
This week we had a serious situation when a number of cows escaped from their field in the Battle area onto a main road, they then, via a level crossing, got onto the main Hastings to London Railway line, this resulted in the railway line being closed until they were rounded up. It was only because it was around 21:30 hours that there was not an accident.

Don’t ignore something you see or hear that seems out of place.

Noting down a registration number or a description of the person you saw could be the key to helping us 
catch a criminal

Please carry on reporting any suspect vehicle that enters your property, although it may not have committed a crime at your property it may have visited a neighbouring establishment and committed a crime, by you calling it in, it puts that vehicle in an exact area an specific time.  Don’t forget, if when you are about your everyday business you see something that looks suspicious or out of place and you think possible crime is taking place, please call it in on the non-emergency number 101, that is unless a definite crime is being committed, then call 999.
