Officers have been deployed in the air and on the ground for the second time today following reports of a another illegal hunt.

Gloucestershire Constabulary's Rural Crime Team tweeted: "Report number two of illegal hunting.

"This time Mid Cotswolds area and a different hunt. A hefty police response again."

In a second tweet the constabulary reminded the public that Hare coursing, Fox hunting and Deer coursing are all illegal under the hunting act.

The tweet said: "We deal with them all. Our critics need to remember it's not all one sided. If we deal with one, we deal with the other."
