B&Q car park display torched

Published:  22 July, 2011

BOLTON: A £500 summerhouse on display at B&Q in Bolton town centre was set alight in the early hours last Saturday.

It is thought the arsonists used petrol to start the blaze and police have appealed for anyone with information about the attack to contact them.

The wooden summer house was in a car park display at the entrance to B&Q. Store manager Stephen O'Toole said: "If the summer house had been any closer to the building, the whole place could have gone up, especially if the people who did it were using an accelerant. It was very dangerous."
