LANDOWNERS in Puxton and Hewish are being urged to lock their gates after reports people were deliberately letting livestock go free.
Policeman Terry Stevens put across the message to villagers at a parish council meeting last month.
It comes after two horses were killed on the road after being let out of their fields next to the A370.
The officer said the incidents were a ‘major concern’ and called on animal owners to make sure their gates were securely locked.
