Pigeons die in Milton Keynes arson attack

A pigeon loft in Milton Keynes has been set on fire killing all 27 birds inside at the time.

Firefighters and police were called after the arson attack in Crispin Road, Bradville, on 1 September.

Police, appealing for witnesses, said the owner had spent the past 20 years breeding and training the pigeons.

A spokesman said: "We believe the person, or people who did this were aware of what was inside which makes this even more distressing."
