Police give countdown of hare coursers cars seized in Cambridgeshire




Cambridgeshire's Rural Crime Action Team have given a tongue-in-cheek countdown of the top cars chosen by hare coursers across the county this season.
Posting on their Facebook page Policing Fenland followed tradition to leave the top three to last.
The move came after RCAT announced they had taken another hare coursing car off the road on Saturday (March 14).
They said: "This one not taxed since 2015 - unusual to see an Audi Allroad but we have had them. Which car do you think wins this year's most seized?"
They then announced in reverse order the top eight.
