Have your say

THREE teenagers have been charged in connection with a fire at Matlock’s Hurst Farm Social Club.

The boys, aged 13, 14 and 16, have been charged with arson. They are due to appear before magistrates in Chesterfield later this month.

Firefighters were called to the club, in Hazel Grove, on the afternoon of Thursday, December 22 following reports of a fire in a smoking shelter at the back of the club.

They contacted police as they believed the cause of the fire to be suspicious.
