Castle security plea

POLICE are asking the public to be vigilant after suspicious men were spotted in the vicinity of Warkworth Castle.

They received a report on Tuesday at around 4.30pm of half-a-dozen men in and around the riverside and the Warkworth Castle car park.

Alnwick Neighbourhood Police Inspector Paul Truscott is asking people to contact police if they see anything suspicious in the village, particularly around the castle and the cricket club.

“We are working with castle security to ensure the site remains secure when it is closed to visitors,” he said.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 ext. 69191.
