Arsonists target Strensall farm for second time

Arsonists have targeted a North Yorkshire farm for the second time in two years, destroying a barn and causing about £30,000 of damage.

The blaze, at a farm on Sutton Road, Strensall, was discovered shortly after midnight on Wednesday.

The straw-filled wooden barn replaced another one at the same farm which was also destroyed by fire two years ago.

Police said they believed that due to the remote location of the farm, the offenders may have used a vehicle.

Anyone with information about the blaze is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police.
