Fascinating item on the Minister's report to Social Justice Committee this morning on sheep rustling in rural Wales. Apparently, this is a problem but is not showing up in the crime statistics. The Minister reports that crimes against rural communities are closely interlinked with a 'way of life', particularly in the agricultural sector. I was not entirely clear what she meant by that but she has promised to raise it with the Chief Constables so we will see what transpires.
