The men, all in the their late twenties and from the Penrith area, have been arrested on suspicion of burglaries at Flass House.

Detectives from Cumbria Police are investigating the incidents which have taken place over a number of months.

The Grade 2 listed mansion has been the subject of repeated attacks by so-called 'Urban Explorers'.
