The group were prosecuted for various offences yesterday (January 16) and dispersed from the county.

Their 4X4 vehicle was pictured on Policing Fenland Facebook along with the dogs that were put in the back of the police van.

It came as part of Operation Galileo, which sees police across Cambridgeshire disrupt illegal poaching such as hare coursing.
