A 14-YEAR-old girl has been suspicion of aggravated trespass as part of the police response to the badger cull.

The teenager is among four people to be arrested yesterday as part of Operation Themis, the policing response to the badger cull.

Following reports of excessive noise in the Tibberton area a 37-year-old Coventry woman was arrested on suspicion of breach of an injunction at about 10.30pm.

In a separate incident in the Tibberton area, shortly before 11.30pm, a 44-year-old woman, a 14-year-old girl from Didcot and a 25-year-old man of no fixed abode were arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespass.

All four remain in police custody at this time.

Elsewhere police are investigating after members of the public discovered a box containing 16 cartridges of live ammunition on a footpath.

The box was handed to police and inquiries are ongoing to trace the person responsible for leaving the box on the path.

Chief Superintendent Gary Thompson said "We're really grateful to those who handed in the ammunition.

"We are making inquiries into who left it there and will take appropriate action as soon as we can identify the person.

"We take this very seriously because as we have said public safety has been our key objective throughout the operation."
