13 year old arrested over arson attack at Skegness Caravan Park

Police investigating an arson following the deliberate ignition of a caravan at Southview Holiday Park in Burgh Road, Skegness have arrested a 13-year-old boy.

Police were called to reports of the blaze at 8.09pm on Friday 27 May. Fire investigators have confirmed this as arson, and officers from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and forensic staff are carrying out several lines of enquiry.

As a result of the fire, two caravans suffered total damage and three more suffered extensive damage. It is believe the caravans in question were unused and there were no casualties as a result of the fire.

Police are now appealing for witnesses who may have captured footage not yet viewed, or may have information about the incident to come forward.

In the meantime, the 13-year-old arrested on suspicion of arson, has been released on bail
