Police are questioning a 13-year-old boy from Howden in relation to the suspected arson of the town’s cricket pavilion.

The historic building on Ashes Playing Fields burned down on Monday.

Chief Inspector Kirsty Tock, “The media coverage of this incident has prompted a suspect to come forward.  I would like to thank the community and the local press for their coverage of the fire and would now ask that they allow the police to carry out a full investigation.

“Speculation via social media has been intense following the incident and I would ask for people to please respect that there is an investigation underway and avoid rumour and hearsay.”

Crime Scene Investigators and Fire Investigation Officers from Humberside Fire and Rescue are still working to establish the circumstances of the fire.
