Police in Cumbria are seeking those responsible for poisoning a clump of trees.

Holes were drilled in the roots of eight trees on Yewbarrow Road in Ulverston and poison poured in.

Cumbria Police described it as a "shocking act of criminal damage" which would result in the trees dying.

The force appealed for anyone with information about the incident, which has happened over the past few days, to get in touch.
