People warned against entering private land

Anyone walking in the countryside is asked not to enter private land, particularly if there's livestock there.

It comes after police received reports on Monday (April 5) from a local farmer that several gates on his fields had been left open on several occasions over the last few weeks.

Authorities say this has led to a series of issues which have had to be rectified and has been frustrating for the farmer as the fields have no public right of way through them.

As a result, the constabulary has taken to social media to remind residents to not enter private land if out and about, and if you need to open a gate to make sure you securely shut it afterwards.

It adds livestock escaping can have numerous knock on effects, including unecessary harm or suffering coming to those animals.
