TWO schoolboys accused of setting fire to a charity's adventure playground will go on trial in December.

The 13-year-old and 14-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, will stand trial on Wednesday, December 4, at Bradford Youth Court, accused of arson.

Both teenagers pleaded not guilty to a single charge of arson each; relating to a blaze which caused £50,000 of damage to Eccleshill Adventure Playground.

Firefighters were called to the area, also known as the Big Swing Adventure Playground, at 7pm on Monday, September 3, 2018, where an indoor play space dubbed the ‘hobbit house’ was alight.

The charity, which delivers free adventure play sessions across the Bradford district, often in under-privileged areas of the city, was left devastated by the blaze.
