illegal mudflat fisherman - please help

PLease note:  on saturday, we saw two men fishing the mudflats illegally in the protected area beyond the floating hides, where all the shorebirds feed using wooden rafts or canoes to slide on the mud - see picture below. I know others have seen this and commented on it. we made a few calls, and perhaps other birders did too because two policemen did come a couple of hours later but the two men had left by then. they said if anyone sees this they should call 999 immediately. i wanted to bring this to all your attention and ask that please do this if you should see them so we can put an end to this. thanks.
