Search for Three Teenagers After York Racecourse Portaloo Fire

York Racecourse

4:51pm 22nd July 2013

York police are appealing for information to help identify a group of youths following an arson incident in the city.

It occurred at 9.45pm on Thursday 11 July 2013, on the Knavesmire, when a number of portable toilets, used at York racecourse, were set alight, causing around £400 worth of damage.

After the incident a group of three youths in their late teens was seen heading away towards Scarcroft Hill.

The only description is that all three people were wearing grey hoodies.

PC Ben Pepper, of York Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “This is a pointless act of vandalism which has caused inconvenience for racegoers.

“If you have any information that could help with this investigation I ask that you contact the police straight away.”

Anyone who can help to identify those responsible for this fire and damage should contact York police straight away on 101, select option 2 and ask for Ben Pepper. Alternatively information can be emailed to ben.pepper@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk.

Or, if you would prefer to pass information on anonymously, please contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, on 0800 555111, quoting reference number 12130118522.
