A brand new website has launched today and hopes to connect farmers together to tackle rural crime.

FarmWatcherUK, is based within County Durham and has been running for years, however they have now made the switch to an online community.

this will allow alerts from regional and national police forces to be shared within the farming community quickly via social media networks.
