Gun fired at house

POLICE are investigating after an increase of incidents in Whitby involving air guns.

The latest one was on Prospect Hill where a house was damaged after a gun was fired from the pavement outside the house.

Whitby police say it is “one of several” incidents involving the “illegal and anti-social” use of an air weapon in the last few weeks.

They are now appealing to anyone who has information about individuals or groups behaving in such a manner to contact PC 445 Harry Baker on 0845 6060 247.
