A MAN has been jailed for two years for an arson attack at a farm in Ramsey, Cambridgeshire, which damaged £100,000 worth of straw.
At a previous hearing Mark Wright, 21, of Caldbeck Close, Peterborough was found guilty of the arson in Ramsey and not guilty of a second arson.
Wright was linked to the fire after footwear marks matching his trainers were found at the scene.
DC Amanda Blythe said: "Thankfully no one was hurt during the fire however the family had to be evacuated overnight and it was extremely costly to them.
