ARSONISTS set fire to a toilet in a field.

The portable loo was next to a field of standing crops in Wolf Lane, Gorefield when it was set alight at 12.59pm on Saturday (July 24).

Fire fighters from Wisbech extinguished the blaze by 1.32pm but said: “It could have become a far more serious incident.”

A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service warned: “People who start fires are risking their own lives and the lives of others.

“This fire could have easily spread to the nearby standing crops.”
