Rural crime figures across Derbyshire show a fall.

Figures out this week show the impact of rural crime in our area through the lockdown.

There was a 15% fall in the number of cases in Derbyshire through 2020 costing £7.9m

Crimes included fly tipping, the theft of agricultural machinery, tools and livestock, and a significant increase in dog attacks

The Midlands region experienced the biggest drop in activity, which the NFU put down to Government restrictions, extra security on farms and rural policing.
