Po­lice probe pub blaze

West Lothian Courier - - News -

Po­lice are ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion af­ter a sus­pi­cious fire at a West Loth­ian pub.

the Clachan Bar in Whit­burn was bro­ken into in the early hours of satur­day morn­ing and set alight. Luck­ily dam­age was not ex­ten­sive and the pub has re-opened.

of­fi­cers are now urg­ing any­one who can as­sist with their en­quiries to come for­ward.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Barry Car­lin of Liv­ingston CID said:“We are still try­ing to es­tab­lish the full cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing this wil­ful fir­erais­ing but thank­fully no one was in­jured as a re­sult of the fire. It was quickly brought un­der con­trol by emer­gency ser­vices, how­ever the con­se­quences of this act could have been far worse. We are keen to hear from any­one who may have seen any­thing sus­pi­cious at the time of the in­ci­dent, and sim­i­larly for any­one with any fur­ther in­for­ma­tion rel­e­vant to this in­ves­ti­ga­tion to con­tact po­lice im­me­di­ately.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Po­lice scotland on 101 quot­ing ref­er­ence 903 of satur­day 16th septem­ber.
