Selby police are appealing for information following the destruction of a large number of straw bales in the area.
They were destroyed by fire at around 12:30am on Saturday 29 September 2012, at a property on Birkin Road, West Haddlesey.
As a result of the blaze around 30 tonnes of straw was lost in the fire which is believed to have been started deliberately.

"If you know who started this fire please contact the police or Crimestoppers straight away."
Anyone who can help the police with their enquiries is asked to contact Selby police on 101, press option 2 and ask for Stuart Henderson. Alternatively information can be emailed to email@example.com.
