The owners of a fishing tackle shop in St Ives have been left devastated after the premises was broken into. They are appealing for help to identify the men involved who were captured on CCTV.

Three men broke into the premises of St Ives Tackle based on the Industrial estate, in Houghton, at 10:20pm on May 20.  

The thieves managed to get away with £12-£13,000 worth of fishing gear and equipment.  

The family-run business owned by Adam 33, Micky, 36 and Mike Bartlett, 60 were distraught to discover the damage on Friday.  

Adam said: “We had no idea that this theft had happened until we turned up the next day. The thieves got away with a lot of high value items.
