Epping Forest may lose its mounted keepers
Horses are needed to access some parts of Epping Forest
After the City of London Corporation announced that foot and bike patrols would replace the mounted keepers who traditionally policed Epping Forest, Lyn Goodwin, a member of the Epping Forest Riders Association, launched a protest campaign.
She said: "We’re asking for a proper consultation with all users of the forest. Mounted keepers can get to the places others can’t."
Forest users have reported an increase in crime since the number of mounted keepers was reduced.
