Bolton: house of god set on fire

From the press (18 Jan):

TWO arsonists admitted causing a blaze at a derelict church.

Scott Withington, aged 26, of Barfield Road, Salford, and a 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, set fire to the former United Reformed Anglican Church in Beta Street, School Hill, at about 3pm on March 19, 2012.

Police officers doused the flames with a fire extinguisher from their car before firefighters arrived. Police were called after receiving information about two men acting suspiciously.

When they drove along Beta Street, they saw the former church on fire.

Too bad they got nicked – fuck religion.
