- Daventry Area Crime - Suspicious van and persons, Barby
A member of the Farming Community has reported a van and persons acting suspiciously in Barby.
Farmer Ken said (sic) “This van hanging around Longdown lane with Romanian guys in it, when I approached them they say they’re looking to buy lamb from me for half price, got a sneaky feeling they’re up to no good, be interesting to see if anyone spots them hanging around anywhere else”
Tensions in the farming community are understandably running high given the recent lamb losses.
Farmers and the public at large are being asked to keep their eyes open and report any incident such as this to the Police on 999 (Quoting Op Hillman for Warwickshire or Op Stock for Northamptonshire).

UPDATED: We can confirm that this incident is being handled by Northants Police.
UPDATED 2: Following suspicious circumstances on a sheep farm in Warwickshire, just across the county/Daventry boundary, we are keen to be informed of sightings of a white van challenged by a vigilant farmer on his land. We have full details of the vehicle: it’s registration ends VXF and it has writing on the back including a company name ‘Plantation Shutters’ and we want to speak to the driver/occupants. Enquiries with the bona fide company of this name indicates it has no connection, hence our interest. If seen in Northamptonshire, please report on 101 or 999 depending on the circumstances, quoting Operation Stock (crime reference 1900036556)
