Police presence 'stepped up' at nature reserve

Police will be monitoring an Island nature reserve more closely, following numerous cases of byelaws being broken there.

Officers say over the past few months they've received reports on a regular basis of byelaws being broken at the Ayres National Nature Reserve along with suspected drug activity in the area.

As a result, the constabulary says Police and wardens will be making regular visits to the site going forward and that any offences will be dealt with 'robustly'.

Authorities are asking residents to make themselves aware of rules in place there, which include no camping, no fires, dogs must kept on leads at all times and not to enter restricted areas which are marked with notices.

Those found to be breaking the byelaws could face a hefty fine of up to £2,500.
