Two teenagers have been arrested by police investigating the theft of hundreds of pounds from a model sheep which was being used to collect money for charity.

Police said the head of the fibreglass sheep had been cut off outside Skipton Town Hall.

The artwork, valued at £2,000, had been installed by Skipton Town Council to raise money for charity.

Two local 16-year-olds have been released on conditional bail.

The donations were intended to go towards Alzheimer's and Parkinson's charities.
