Police are investigating a spate of attacks on isolated hill farms in west Cornwall. One farm has been targeted fifteen times in five months. Gates and fences on Penwith Moor have been smashed to pieces, allowing cattle to escape on to roads.

Within days of the gates being replaced, they're damaged again.
