Rural crime cost the East of England £6.9 million pounds last year according to new figures from the National Farmers' Union.
The figures are slightly down from the year before though, when the cost was put at £7.1 million.

"Rural thieves are becoming increasingly sophisticated and using computers rather than bolt cutters to steal from farms and country properties. Farmers and police have been working hard to adopt high-tech security measures to tackle the problems which now include: cloning tractor identities, advertising non-existent machinery in agricultural publications and stealing the GPS computer systems which are a key part of modern farming."
Across the UK as a whole, the cost of rural crime was put at £42.5 million in 2015.
