A church door has been deliberately set on fire.

Firefighters were called to a Methodist church in Lyon’s Lane, Chorley at 5pm on Friday, and managed to stop the blaze spreading any further.

A spokesman for fire service said: “We think that children are responsible. We managed to stop the fire spreading from the door, but this had potential to be a lot worse.”
