THREE youths charged with arson after a fire in the Valley Gardens will face trial in September.

A date was set at a hearing at Harrogate Youth Court on Wednesday, after all three pleaded not guilty last month.

The teenagers - two aged 17 and from Harrogate, and one 16 from Scarborough - cannot be named because of their age.

The wooden fort in the children’s playground at the Valley Gardens was destroyed in a fire last October. It has since been replaced by a new fort, which opened this month.
