Helicopter search for suspects

A POLICE helicopter was used to search for suspects on the south side of Harrogate on Monday night.

A resident in Fulwith Mill Lane reported intruders had scaled her electric gates and were in the grounds of the property.

She was concerned they were targeting equipment being used for building work at her home.

North Yorkshire Police began a search of the area around 10pm before deciding to call for air support from the West Yorkshire force. Officers stopped and checked three people in the area but did not find any connection to the incident.

After an extensive search, the helicopter was stood down.
