Police are appealing for Cumbrians to join 'country watch' teams, to help tackle rural crime.
'Nights of action' will be held in south Cumbria, where vetted volunteers meet for a formal briefing before heading to observation points.
From 8pm and 2am they will alert police to any suspicious vehicles that would not normally be on the roads at that time.

Anyone who would like to volunteer is asked to contact Cumbria Police on 101 and ask to speak to Sgt Scott O’Neill if you’d like to help in the south of the county or PC Shirley Murray if you’d like to help in the north of the county.
