NORTH Yorkshire Police is investigating after around £700-worth of criminal damage was caused to a train carriage owned by the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

The incident occurred in the yard at Pickering Station between 4.30pm on Friday 13 November and 4pm on Sunday 15 November.

There was damage throughout the carriage including a chair that had been knocked over and the leg was broken, smashed lampshades on some of the tables, first aid and eye wash kits broken into and thrown on the floor and two toilets were left blocked.

The handbrake had also been released on the carriage which meant it had rolled about one foot from where it had been safely left.

Police enquiries have been ongoing to trace suspects, including trawling through CCTV in the area and forensic examinations at the scene.

Witnesses or anyone with information is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and leave a message for Craig Hardcastle or email
