Fears over return of Parkhurst pet poisonings as police up patrols
Further reports of poison being found at Parkhurst Forest have led to Isle of Wight police, once again, upping patrols.
Officers have issued a warning to dog walkers, urging them to remain vigilant.
It's not the first time the force has received reports of suspected pet poisonings in the area.
