A gang of youths have caused damage to a football pitch in Market Deeping after setting a T-Shirt on fire.

Lincolnshire Police said they were called to Deeping Rangers' Haydon Whitham Stadium at about 8.40am this morning (August 14) and found the T-shirt had been set on fire in front of the grandstand.

The five youths had spent the night sheltering at the club and two of them have been spoken to but CCTV is being used to identify the other three.
