Police looking for three people who fled scene of Fife golf club fire

Police have launched an appeal for information after a greenkeeers' store at a Fife golf course was deliberately set on fire.

The incident happened at Leslie Golf Club in Glenrothes in the early hours of yesterday.

Extensive damage was caused to the building, along with the specialist equipment being stored inside.

Police believe that three people who were seen running from the scene may be responsible.

Inspector Kirk Donnelly said: "This was a despicable and deliberate act by selfish individuals and thankfully on this occasion no one was injured.

"A number of wheelie bin fires have also been reported in the Leslie area and it is believed that these incidents may be connected to the fire at the golf club.

"I urge anyone with any information on who may be responsible for these crimes to contact Police Scotland via telephone number 101 quoting incident number 0669 of July 26 202.

"Alternatively calls can be made to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where anonymity can be maintained."
