Three men have been arrested in connection with a number of burglaries at a stately home in Penrith.

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'.

Police are reminding the public that Flass House is privately owned and those entering are doing so as trespassers.

Anyone with any information is asked to email or call 101 and ask to speak to DC Chris Brennand.
