FIVE men, believed to be hare-coursing in a Suffolk village, were reported to police on Sunday.

Police spoke to the group, but did not make any arrests. They were instead reported for trespassing in pursuit of game. The Crown Prosecution Service will now decide whether there is enough evidence for police to question the five further.
A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said: “We received a call on Sunday, January 13, at 10.40am to a group of males around Main Road, Chelmondiston, with dogs.
