DETECTIVES investigating a fire which destroyed an adventure play park in Harrogate’s Valley Gardens have charged three youths with arson.

Two local youths aged 17 and a 16-year-old from Scarborough are due to appear at Harrogate Youth Court on Wednesday March 14.

Officers have been investigating since a wooden fortress structure was burnt out in the early hours of Saturday October 8.

Five other youths who were arrested in connection with the incident will not face any further police action.
