TWO 14-year-old boys arrested on suspicion of arson following a fire on Sunday have been released on police bail until February 19.

Police have also questioned a third 14-year-old in connection with the fire at Caulton Farm in Leadenhall Road, Holbeach St Marks, but he was not arrested.

Police are continuing to investigate the fire, which broke out at 6.30pm and was put out by five fire crews.

Sunday’s fire was the third suspected arson attack at Holbeach St Marks in a matter of weeks.

On New Year’s Day seven caravans were destroyed by fire behind the New Inn and just over two weeks earlier a pensioner’s shed was set alight in Browne-Wilkinson Walk.
