Young Children were seen fleeing the scene of a major shed fire in Loxley Road tonight, after a prank went wrong.

A group of young boys were watched fleeing the scene after setting alight a shed next to a property on Loxley Road shortly before 7pm this evening.

Fire crews rushed to the scene and immediately put out the blaze, however locals suspect that it is definitely arson.

The children responsible are yet to be identified but it is thought to have been a deliberate act of vandalism, with the tearaway youths not realising how flammable the shed was.
