Police are investigating a suspected arson attack that destroyed two mobile homes in Barns Green in the early hours of Saturday morning (January 9).

The two static homes in Valewood Lane were gutted by the blaze, but nobody was inside either home at the time.

Four fire engines - two from Horsham and one each from Billingshurst and Storrington - were called to the scene along with police officers at about 1.20am.

Firefighters used three jets and one hose reel as they spent the night battling the flames.

The two buildings, 20m long and 5m in height, were wrecked by the fire.

A spokesperson for Sussex Police said: “The incident is being treated as arson and anyone who saw what happened is asked to contact the police via 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting serial 133 of 09/01.”
