image for Isle of Wight News - Mysterious Arsonist Strikes Again Behemoth's team work hard at rebuilding Westcourt's wall

Police are hunting a pair of youths who are believed to be behind a series of arson attacks on dry stone walls around Shorwell.

"There are a couple of young lads we'd like to speak to," said police constable Michelle Gonmad. "We have a fair idea who they are, on account of there not being very many youths in the Shorwell area."

The border wall for Westcourt Farm, on the road to Limerstone has been burned down three times in the past month, keeping local drystone-waller Lyndon Behemoth of Behemoth Dry Stone Walls, Cowes, very busy.

"I hope the police catch these miscreants," said Behemoth. "I've got customers over in Ryde who are desperate for their drystone walls to be redone, but I can't get there when I'm having to rebuild these burned down walls. I have to do these first, they're a public menace. Westcourt's llama's could escape and that would wreck havoc around Shorwell."

Police have no idea why the young arsonists would be targeting the walls around Westcourt Farm, but suspect that it is likely to be boredom rather than any sinister revenge for not letting them pet the llamas.

"Kids in Shorwell do tend to get bored since the council closed the swings on health and safety grounds," said PC Gonmad.

Harold Boatman, the owner of Westcourt Farm did not want to comment on the story, instead he issued the following statement: "Gerroff my land!"
