Sett Destruction Court Case Dropped
We have been involved with a Court case for over a year, where three of our Committee Members were witnesses for the prosecution. We are disappointed to learn that the case has been dropped from being heard in Court, a week before the court date.
In March 2022 we were informed by a local dog walker that a sett she looked at regularly had been destroyed. The sett was next to a popular public bridleway, and clearly visible to the many walkers that passed it daily. The Informant had seen someone burning vegetation and scrub on the bridleway. This material had been removed from the sett area which appeared to have been destroyed.
