Police in Wiltshire say they are facing a growing battle against poachers and in particular hare coursers.

Hare coursing involves chasing hares with dogs. Like all hunting with dogs, it was banned in 2004.

But ITV News West Country has found that in Wiltshire, it is still a serious problem and is leading to other types of crime in rural communities.
