THREE youths have been arrested following a suspected arson at a Littlemoor play park.

The three, two boys and a girl, aged between 14 and 16 year-old, are all from the Weymouth area.

A spokesman for Dorset Police said that all three had all been released on police bail whilst officers followed up 'positive lines of enquiry.'

A witness appeal was launched following the incident on Monday (25) evening when play equipment was believed to be set alight maliciously behind the Littlemoor Community Centre on Canberra Road.

Officers said that a Weymouth woman in her thirties sustained superficial burns while trying to extinguish the fire.
