Carp thieves force Radbrook Pool to install CCTV
Saturday 13th November 2010, 11:29AM GMT.
Bosses at a Shropshire fishing pool have been forced to install a CCTV system to stop thieves after at least £20,000 of prized fish was stolen, angling chiefs said today.
An estimated 20 carp have been taken from Radbrook Pool, near Shrewsbury, over a three-year period.
Local angling bosses said in some of the cases fish were believed to be sold on or eaten after being stolen.
It has led to action being taken with cameras rigged up to monitor activity around the site to prevent fish – some weighing 25lbs with a market value of £2,500 – being taken. Read more in today’s Shropshire Star
