POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a pile of logs was destroyed in a suspected arson attack in Barnstaple last night (Tues).

Around 15 logs, valued by police at around £80, were set alight between 6.45pm yesterday and 7.45am today at a farm in Long Meadow Drive.

The fire service believes an accelerant was used to start the fire, which narrowly avoided damaging a tractor parked next to it.

Police are treating the incident as arson and are carrying out door-to-door enquiries in the area today.
