Investigators believe the fire at Howden cricket pavilion could have been started deliberately.

Emergency services were called to the Ashes Playing Field yesterday evening but were unable to save the historic building.

Police and fire officers are working together to establish the circumstances of the fire, and have appealed for two boys who were reportedly seen in the area to come forward to help with the investigation.

Chief Inspector Kirsty Tock, “Although thankfully no one was injured in the incident this a well-used facility and a valued historic building. Its destruction is a significant loss to the community.

“Local neighbourhood police officers are patrolling Howden. If anyone has information that would help to find those who caused this fire I would encourage them to come forward, either by speaking to an officer on patrol or contacting us by phone.”
