Appeal following death of 10,000 rare bees in Wisbech
Police have released an image of two people they would like to speak to in connection with an incident at Wisbech Castle where beehives were deliberately damaged by intruders and thousands of bees killed.
The incident happened at about 5.15am on Wednesday, January 8. CCTV footage showed two people breaking into the castle grounds and lifting the lids off of the hives, before kicking them and attacking the bees inside with sticks.
PC Kirsty Hulley, who is investigating, said: “This was a cruel, unprovoked and completely unnecessary act of violence and Castle staff are, understandably, devastated by the incident.
