CCTV APPEAL: Police hunting three men after suspected arson attack on farm #RuralCrime

The footage shows the men climbing into the farmyard moments before the fire starts.

 

Emergency services were called out to called to a fire in a hay barn at Home Farm on Chapel Lane in Rainhill at around 4.40pm on Sunday afternoon.

 

No-one was injured in the blaze but there was extensive damage to the barn and agricultural machinery, police said.

 

The fire is being treated as ‘suspected malicious’.

 

 

Police believe the men in the CCTV footage could have information which ‘could assist the investigation.’

 

Detective Inspector Jason Pye said: “The fire caused a significant amount of damage to machinery in the barn. Thankfully nobody was injured but this was obviously an upsetting incident for the farm owner.

 

“We are currently looking to trace three males who were seen in the area. CCTV shows them walking around the main farm area shortly before the fire is believed to have started in the barn.”

 

  • Anyone with any information can call Merseyside Police on 0151 777 6812 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
