Two male youths have been arrested in connection with fires at playgrounds in Farsley as police continue their investigation.

As reported earlier this month, a fire was lit in Hainsworth Park under a slide designed for small children and there was a similar incident at Farsley Recreation Ground.

A spokesperson for West Yorkshire Police said today: “Following reports of criminal damage caused to play areas at Farsley Rec and Hainsworth Park on the 4 and 6 July, officers have arrested two males aged 15 and 16.

“Suspects have been released on bail whilst enquiries are ongoing.”
