POLICE have seized slingshots and ball-bearings as part of a crackdown on poaching.

The six slingshots were seized last night by a team from Hampshire Constabulary's Country Watch team.

The team says it was part of an anti-poaching operation in the Test Valley area.

In a post on the Hampshire Country Watch Twitter, the team said: "Six catapults and a huge amount of ball-bearings seized last night in the poaching operation carried out in Test Valley."
