Police on the Isle of Man are searching for vandals who deliberately turned off a compressor which held trout stock.

At around 2.30am last Monday, unidentified persons entered the grounds of The Glen Wyllin Trout Farm and gained access to machinery which regulates the oxygen levels. This has caused a severe depletion in the tank oxygen levels, killing the entire fish stock.
