North Yorkshire Police is appealing for witnesses and information following a report of criminal damage at The Bolton Abbey Trout Hatchery, near Skipton.

At some time between 2pm Saturday 24 February and 11am Sunday 25 February 2018 an unknown person has entered the Bolton Abbey Trout Hatchery near to Strid Wood and diverted an essential water supply pipe to a large storage tank containing 20,000 American Rainbow Trout.

As a result of this, the water has become devoid of oxygen and the fish have died.

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for PC 1405 Simon Crossley at Skipton Police Station.

You can also email simon.crossley@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk
