There were no arrests, seizures or dispersals in the Micheldever area last weekend, police have confirmed.

Hampshire Constabulary had a significant presence on the A33 between Basingstoke and Winchester this weekend after receiving intelligence that horse and trap racing was planned.

The same road was closed for several hours last month after police struggled to deal with the gathering, with hundreds of members of the travelling community taking part.

Dozens of officers were present along the road last weekend for the second week in a row.

Across June 19 and 20, two karts used in horse and trap racing were seized and three people dispersed using a county-wide order put in place.

Officers also cracked down on other unrelated driving offences, including one drug driver, three drink drivers, one "motorist dealt with for drugs offences" and five uninsured driver.

One man, wanted by police for failing to appear at court, was also dealt with.

But last weekend (June 26 and 27), police made no arrests, seized no equipment and moved no people on under a county-wide dispersal order.

Officers from police forces in Kent, Sussex and Surrey were called in to help Hampshire Constabulary after receiving intelligence that horse racing was planned.

Hampshire's police and crime commissioner Donna Jones, tweeted on Sunday: "A massive thank you to Hampshire Police for a hugely successful operation this weekend preventing pony trap racing and keeping the A33 open and horses, residents & businesses safe."

Speaking last Monday, she said: “A huge thank you and well done must be attributed to Hampshire Constabulary for the successful operation at the weekend on the A33.

"This is a key ‘A’ road in the centre of Hampshire and the illegal activities last month from the GRT community which saw them close the road for pony trap racing and illegal gambling, affecting thousands of people who live in the area.

"A follow up event was planned for this weekend, and as a consequence, Hampshire Constabulary took appropriate and necessary measures to keep the road open and the public safe.

"Thank you to all involved including neighbouring forces who sent mutual aid. I continue to support their work in preventing any similar future events.”

Ms Jones was elected to the position last month, after the initial racing, and pledged in her campaign that the same disruption experienced over the early spring bank holiday weekend would not happen again.
