Teenagers charged following Maddiston farm fire

Six teenage boys have been charged following a fire which caused "significant damage" at a Forth Valley farm in June.

Officers in Grangemouth said they traced the youths, who are all aged between 13 and 14, following the blaze outside Maddiston.

Police said several witnesses were traced who were "key in identifying those responsible."

The fire started in an outbuilding at the farm on 8 June.

A Forth Valley Division police spokesman said: "The damage caused was significant, not to mention the danger posed to others including emergency service staff who attended the incident."
