Appeal after damage caused to Carlisle school

[P]olice are investigating criminal damage incidents committed at a Carlisle school.

Over the past few weekends, young persons have set fire to property and have been walking on the roof of Kingmoor School.

The incidents have occurred mainly on Saturday nights.

Police would like anyone with information on these incidents to contact them. They would also like to appeal for local residents to report any suspicious incident occurring on weekends at the school.

A spokesperson for Kingmoor School said: “Kingmoor School is frustrated at the amount of recent vandalism and littering which has taken place. This has included damage through arson to school outdoor equipment. Valuable time and resources are being spent on repairs and cleaning up of the site to enable the safe use of the grounds by our pupils.

“We have taken great pains to try to prevent unauthorised access to the roof of our building as it is fragile and contains numerous skylights. We are still experiencing incidents of trespassing on the roof which is of great concern from a safety point of view.

“We have always been happy for our site to be open for use by the community but feel disappointed about the lack of respect from a few individuals who have been causing problems in recent weeks.”

Anyone with information should call PCSO Nick Leigh on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
