FOUR more people have been arrested in connection with criminal damage at Scarborough Castle over the weekend of May 12-13.

They are four male youths from Scarborough aged 14, 17 and two aged 15.

This brings the total arrested to five including an 18-year-old man who was taken into custody yesterday morning.

All five have been released on bail until later this month while the investigation continues.

Police have since informed the Evening News that they would start using the castle grounds to exercise police dogs at night, to deter incidents.
