Mr Hyde, now director of 4Policing, will host the event on Twitter next Wednesday from midday onwards.

It is hoped that the event will provoke debate and bring some solutions to the ongoing issue of rural crime in Cumbria. The event will use the #RuralCrime hashtag.

Mr Hyde said: “A number of sources told us we need more debate about rural crime.

“That encompasses everything from theft in farm buildings to wildlife issues – it’s a fairly open debate.

“We decided to do the debate online because people live busy lives and can’t go to a central location, but they can always follow up with a phone call.

“We will post up some of what we consider to be good practice and we hope that those who have a vested interest in rural affairs can do something to make a difference.

“We plan to conduct other discussions in the future, on issues such as student crime.”

4Policing was set up by Mr Hyde and three other former police officers a month ago.
