MONEY from a wind farm fund has helped Humberside Police get extra number plate cameras to tackle rural crime.

Some £13,200 from the Lissett Airfield Wind Farm Fund has enabled the force to deploy more automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras to spot travelling criminals on local roads.

The funding was secured by a Farmwatch group working with the police. The fund gets an annual contribution of around £75,000 a year from the wind farm’s operator, Infinis, to support communities in the East Wolds and Coastal ward of the East Riding.
