Teenager bailed over fire at Harrogate's Valley Gardens

A teenager has been released on police bail following a suspected arson attack at a playground in Harrogate.

The teenager, along with three other youths, will answer bail at the end of November.

The fire, which broke out in the early hours of Saturday, destroyed a wooden fortress in Valley Gardens.

Police have appealed for people to come forward with any information in relation to the incident.

Harrogate council, which spent £180,000 on the play park, said it was "saddened and sickened" by the fire.
