BICYCLES and school bags were seized after a fire was started in woodland in Chester.

Two PCSOs were alerted to the incident near the A41 Tarvin Road roundabout yesterday, and saw a group of youths running from the scene.

Cheshire Constabulary's Chester Villages Police Facebook account posted: "PCSO Bailey and PCSO Carpenter have been alerted to a small fire in some woodland near the A41 Tarvin Road roundabout.

"We have seized six bicycles and a number of school bags found in the location as youths ran off.

"This disruption of anti social behaviour is a good result as we continually patrol these areas."
