Cumbria police want to log all incidents which took place in Kirkby Lonsdale while those travelling to Appleby were in town. Even if incidents have already been reported, report them again by email to or telephone 101. Include details of any photographs or CCTV related to these incidents. Emails should have “Kirkby Lonsdale incidents" in the Subject line.

The police confirm that arrests have been made, and more arrests will follow if there is enough evidence. Police patrols have been stepped up and will be in place to cover the return journeys of the travellers.
