Intruders broke in late on Friday evening and took the fish, which are worth a total of £7,725. The carp are between 22” and 26” in length, and had been selected in Israel for their quality by Squire's Pets and Aquatics manager. They were then imported to the centre for the display pond.

Squire's deputy chairman Sarah Squire said, “We are all absolutely devastated that this theft has happened, and are very concerned about the welfare of the fish, as they require a large pond or facility with well-filtered oxygenated water. Pet welfare is at the top of our agenda at Squire’s. We urge people to come forward if they have any information.”

Anyone with any information about the theft is asked to get in touch with Surrey Police on 101.
