Community Safety Message

In Andover over the last couple of days we have come across a couple of blue ropes hanging from trees, these ropes are attached to buckets which are up in the trees and can't be seen that easily. We have also received a couple of calls from members of public reporting that they have found what they believe to be a noose hanging from a tree. These buckets are high up in trees and the blue rope that is attached is hanging down to the ground which is very dangerous for obvious reasons.

These ropes and buckets appear to be some kind of nature experiment.

We are appealing for any information which may help us to identify the person/persons who are putting these ropes and buckets in the trees around Andover.

We would also like to hear from you if you have found one of these ropes and buckets as we have only found a couple and believe that there could be more in and around Andover.

If you have any information regarding this matter then you can email me on:

Many Thanks.

Andover Neighbourhood Policing Team,
Andover Police Station,
South Street, Andover, SP10 2ED.
