An uninsured vehicle was seized and a driver reported when police acted on reports of suspected hare coursing in the Witchford village area.

Officers from Ely police station responded to reports of hare coursing on Thursday November 30.

A police spokesman said: “The prompt attendance of the officer resulted in the seizure of a Hyundai Sante Fe 4x4 vehicle - which was being used without insurance.

“None of the three males found in attendance of the 4x4 were from the local area - one from South Yorkshire, the other two from Essex.

“Although not found in possession of dogs it was suspected that the three men had attended for the purposes of coursing.

“There has been an increase in recent reports of such activities from the Little Thetford and Littleport areas.

“The Hyundai was seized and the owner reported for the offence of driving whilst uninsured.

“In order to reclaim the vehicle the keeper will need to obtain insurance. He will also need to pay the fees associated with recovery of the vehicle and it’s storage at our recovery agent.

“He will also be met with any associated fines and penalties when he appears at magistrates court.”
