Arson attack at garden centre causes thousands of pounds of damage

Thousands of pounds of damage has been caused by an arson attack at a North Wales garden centre.

Bellis Brothers in Holt were targetted by vandels who set fire to the strawberry tunnels in the pick-your-own-fruit section.

Police have launched an investigation into the attack on Monday.

A spokesman for Bellis Brothers told NewsNorthWales: “During the evening of Monday, July 25, we had two of our table top strawberry tunnels burnt down deliberately.

“We lost all the strawberries, irrigation, troughs and plastic covers. To repair and replace the equipment will cost in the region of £2,000.

“If anybody saw anything suspicious on that evening or in the early hours of Tuesday morning please get in touch and we will pass all information on to the police.

“We apologise but can no longer offer table top strawberries for pick-your-own.”

A North Wales Police spokesman asked anyone with information which could help the investigation to call 101 quoting reference U110089.

Alternatively, information can be given to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at
