Police officers and volunteers who work together to fight crime in rural areas have been given an award for their hard work. The 'Farmwatch' scheme sees teams go out at night, to catch burglars, poachers and scrap-metal thieves.
'Farmwatch nights' are organised at the last minute, and held on random evenings to catch criminals unaware.
