Police in Glenrothes are appealing for information following a fire at Leslie Golf Club, Glenrothes on Sunday, 26 July 2020.

Around 2.30 am on Sunday, 26 July, emergency services attended a report of fire at the greenkeepers store at Leslie Golf Club.

“This was a despicable and deliberate act by selfish individuals and thankfully on this occasion no one was injured.

“A number of wheelie bin fires have also been reported in the Leslie area and it is believed that these incidents may be connected to the fire at the Golf Club.
