South Yorkshire Police will be offering a specialist forensic marking technique known as SelectDNA as part of the city-wide Operation Reach.

Officers were briefed about the visits earlier today.

In a statement, the force said the marking was similar to Smart Water and that it will offer farmers to chance to protect property and assist in the identification of stolen items.
