Thieves steal koi carp from Polhill Garden Centre
Slippery thieves have pinched hundreds of pounds worth of Koi Carp from a Sevenoaks garden centre.

The fence of Polhill Garden Centre, on London Road, Badgers Mount, was cut in the early hours of Wednesday, July 8.

A quantity of Koi Carp fish were then stolen from a pond belonging to Maidenhead Aquatics - one of the businesses operating in the centre.

A staff membersaid: "We don't know exactly how many of the fish they've stolen just yet.

"It's a big pond and there were quite a few fish in it. But we don't think they took very many.

"It's probably a few hundred pounds' worth."

Police are investigating the theft, which happened around 2.45am, and CCTV footage is being viewed.

Maidenhead Aquatics' centre at the site boasts a fish house containing a 12,000 litre koi pond and fish up to 85cm.
