A tent arson is being investigated by police.

The three-man tent was left unattended on grassland close to the skate park and play area in Ipswich Close, Sutton, on the evening of Saturday, June 7.

On their return they found the fire service on site putting out a blaze, which had destroyed both the tent and its contents.
