Arson attack on orchard - Orrell
Friday 27th June, 2008

Police in Wigan are hoping to catch arsonists who torched a new fruit orchard.

Between 7pm on Monday 23 June and 11am on Tuesday, 24 June 2008, a number of people met in the fruit orchard at Orrell Water Park, Lodge Road, Orrell.

It is believed they then built a camp fire, chopped down several fruit trees and threw them on the fire.

The local community had worked hard to create a new regeneration of orchards at Orrell Water Park and officers are keen to trace those responsible for the fire.

Anyone who saw people acting suspiciously near the orchard is asked to contact PC 07261 Paul Dreha at Wigan police station on 0161 856 7188 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
