Cumbria police are investigating disturbing stickers that have been left around the South Lakes.

The stickers depict a crude drawing of a home on fire with the words 'Your second home'.

A photograph of one of the stickers posted on the South Lakes police Facebook page includes an element in the top left-hand corner that has been blocked out.

The Facebook post read: "We are aware that a number of concerning stickers have been placed on signage in the Lakes area over the last few months.

"Offensive language and implying that property will be subject to arson will never be acceptable and police inquiries to identify those responsible are ongoing.

"If you have any information which would assist police in identifying those responsible please get in touch on 101 or email"

The Facebook post includes the Windermere, Ambleside, Coniston, Hawkshead and Grasmere areas.
