Rural landowners are being urged to review security to cut the risk of thefts of equipment and vehicles.
The Country Land and Business Association said a combination of dark nights and economic uncertainty were a “recipe for an increase in rural crime”.
CLA North regional director Dorothy Fairburn said: “With the added catalysts of a fragile economy and belt-tightening measures, we are already starting to see a swell of rural crime such as theft and fly-tipping.”
