Arson suspected in cricket pavillion fire

Shortly after 9pm on Sunday January 1 police and the fire service attended the scene of a fire at Ullenwood Cricket Club, near Cheltenham.

The pavillion was alight and the flames were tackled by the fire service.

Shortly before the fire was reported a white male was seen by witnesses to run from nearby woods and jump into a small red car, believed to be a Citroen Saxo or a Peugeot 106, which contained other occupants and drove off.

Police are keen to speak to anyone with information on the incident or who may have seen a small red hatchback driving in the area of the incident.

Anyone with information should ring police on 0845 090 1234 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 quoting incident number 703 of January 1.
