Police are looking into whether a fire at a former Boston College site was arson.

The blaze at the former sports hall in Mill Road was reported to police at about 9.15pm.

A police spokesman said: “It would appear that it was a deliberate ignition and further enquiries are ongoing to see if it needs to be crimed as arson.”

The site is now owned by Cyden Homes.
