DETECTIVES investigating a large fire on marshland in Neston are continuing to appeal for information from three members of the public.

Almost a week since the fire occurred, at around 6.20pm on Saturday, March 19 in Parkgate, officers are keen to speak to three witnesses who were in the area at the time.

It is believed a woman was walking her black dog shortly before the fire took place and spoke to a group of teenagers.

A man and a woman were also in Parkgate and are believed to have spoken to a group of teenagers and taken photographs.

Officers are keen to hear from them as they continue to investigate the fire which is being treated as arson.

A number of enquiries are ongoing including conducting house-to-house and reviewing CCTV footage.

The public are being asked to check their CCTV footage prior to the fire taking place in particular residents living in the Manorial Road, Manorial Road South, Moorside Lane and Parkgate Road areas as well as the surrounding cul-de-sacs and to contact police if it could assist with the investigation.

Detective Sergeant Kevin Green, of Ellesmere Port local policing unit, said: “The investigation is still ongoing and we’re continuing to appeal for information and CCTV footage.

“I am particularly keen to speak to three members of the public who were in the area at the time and encourage them to come forward as they may have information which could help with our investigation.
