Dorset Police reveal latest weapon to tackle rural crime

Updated: 


No your eyes do not deceive you; it's a Police tractor and will be used as a display to highlight rising crime in the countryside.

The three-and-a-half tone Zetor Proxima which is on loan from the manufacturer comes complete with the obligatory blue lights and eye-catching livery.

Officers hope that by displaying this tractor, it will remind those in rural communities to take precautions against theft.

The tractor will make its show debut at the Dorset Country Show in Dorchester on Saturday, September 3.
