Three people have been charged with arson over fire damage to a wooden fortress playground in North Yorkshire.

Two 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old were charged after the play park at Harrogate Valley Gardens was damaged in October 2011.

The three teenagers are expected to appear at Harrogate Youth Court to face charges on 14 March.

Police said five other youths who had been arrested would not face any further action over the incident.
