The police are appealing for information following an assault on farmland near Sherston.

A woman and her friend trespassed on private farmland in Luckington at around 11am on Saturday, October 3 – wrongly believing there was a fox hunt in progress.

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: "When the woman and her friend were asked to leave by the landowners, she refused.

"She then punched the landowner – a woman in her 40s – in the face, leaving her feeling extremely distressed.

"The suspect (pictured) is described as white, aged in her mid 30s, of stocky build with short dark brown hair. She was wearing dark clothing with camouflage trousers.

"Anyone with information should call 101 and quote crime reference number 54200101135.

"Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
