Police investigate second Somersham arson

ARSONISTS have struck again in Somersham – this time damaging a derelict building.

Police are investigating the blaze, which was started between 1am and 8am last Saturday (June 30).

It is believed that a group of youths had been building a bonfire close before the blaze started. The Evergreens on Chatteris Road has been damaged by the fire.

DC Liz Cooper said: “I would appeal for anyone who was in the area and saw anything at all suspicious to contact me.

“Any information could be very important to this investigation.”

The Hunts Post reported in March how more than 40 chickens kept at the village’s allotments off King Street were killed in an arson attack, which also destroyed a number of sheds and vehicles.

CONTACT: Anyone with information should contact DC Cooper on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
