Police are investigating after a fire destroyed a van in Whin Lane, Out Rawcliffe, before spreading to a farm outbuilding.

Firefighters were called just before 4am on Saturday, and were able to stop the blaze spreading in the building.

A spokesman for Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service said: “We got there just in time to get water on the building fire, but the van was destroyed.

“I’m putting it down as a suspicious case and police are investigating.”
