TWO 12-feet tall wooden farm gates were stolen from a plantation at Shap Fell.

Police are appealing for information after the theft believed to have occurred between January 29 and February 1.

The gates were newly fitted at the site just south of the Shap pink granite quarry.

The culprits would have needed tools to remove the gates.

Officers asked drivers who regularly use the A6 in this area and who might have noticed either people acting suspiciously or vehicles parked in the area, to contact PC Diane Owen on 101.
