Appeal for witnesses following arson
Thames Valley Police is appealing for information about the arson incident that occurred on Easter Bank Holiday Monday (17th April) at approximately 3.15pm in the Manor Farm field, next to Station Road
The fire service attended a fire of two large bales of Miscanthus ("Elephant Grass") in the Manor Farm field, which is believed to have been started deliberately.
Thames Valley Police officers attended the scene, and put road closures in place in order to carry out an investigation, and to protect residents from harm.
Investigating officer, Police Constable James Holmes, based at Aylesbury police station, said: "These fires could easily have caused people to be seriously injured, and had the fires continued to grow and spread, there could have been significant damage to the farm.
"I am appealing for anyone who has any information which they think could help our investigation to please call the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number on 101."
If you have any information relating to this case, please call 101 quoting reference '43170110615', or contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
