FIFE Constabulary is holding a second wildlife crime seminar, following a highly successful one in May.

The next event, on November 22, will be at Fife police headquarters in Glenrothes.

Subjects, many arising from the last seminar, will include an update on current trends in rural crime and a discussion on gamekeeping in areas with a lot of badgers.

Firearms and their use, with emphasis on handguns, and legislative changes affecting deer management, will also be discussed.

PC Ian Laing, Fife Constabulary wildlife and environmental crime co-ordinator, said places could be booked through him on 0845 600 5702 or ian.laing@fife.pnn.police.uk and anyone interested was welcome to attend.
