LIMBURG - Police in the Limburg district of Helden now have a description of a man who may be responsible for setting deadly traps in the area.

Walkers surprised the man on Friday as he was busy digging a pit in the middle of a path through some woods. He had also strung a rope in front of the pit. The walkers called the police, but the man ran away as soon as he realised he had been spotted.

In recent weeks, three traps have been found in forest paths in the area. All three have contained concrete blocks studded with metal spikes. Just over a week ago, a walker was injured when he fell into one of the pits.
