A spokesman from Nottinghamshire Police said: 'Nottinghamshire Police has been made aware of an unauthorised encampment at a school playing field on Bingham Road in Radcliffe upon Trent.
'The Rushcliffe Neighbourhood Policing Team has been in the area to engage with and respond to any concerns from both the local and travelling communities.'Yes, they are there to be impartial, and listen to the concerns of the people who are breaking the law.
One person, who did not wish to be named, told Nottinghamshire Live: 'We are at our wits' end and have been sickened by the behaviour.
'The horse was dragged by a rope around the neck and was then kicked in the head. It is heartbreaking.
'We have called the RSPCA and they have opened a case and are taking it seriously but they won't come down without the police.
'We have also seen them swing a dog around by the neck too.'Funnily enough, when it's a Kent housing estate, the police spring into action and seize the animal immediately.
What's the difference?
