Crops Damaged in Monxton

  • Written by Editor

Local News | Crops Damaged in Monxton | Andover & VillagesWe’re investigating after damage was caused to crops in the Monxton area by people using metal detectors last Sunday night.

As well as the damage to the fields, 'Night Hawking' as it is known, is a Heritage Crime, Heritage crime is "any offence which harms the value of England’s heritage assets and their settings to this and future generations".

People that take part in Night Hawking rarely hand over any finds that they make and you must report treasure to the local coroner within 14 days of finding it.

There’s an unlimited fine or up to 3 months in prison for not reporting treasure.

There are people and clubs that legitimately take part in metal detecting, but they must have permission to do so.

If you have any information in relation to this incident, please contact us 101 quoting 44170114292, or if you do see anybody taking part in this activity please report it to us so that we can ascertain if permission to be on the land in question has been given.
