Ponies die in stable arson attack
Two miniature ponies have died in a "cruel and malicious" arson attack on stables in Kent, police have said.

Detectives were called to the stables in Binney Road, Allhallows, Medway, on Friday afternoon, after firefighters put out the blaze.

Det Con Steve Goldsmith said: "It is believed the fire was started deliberately and officers are currently examining the scene for evidence."

Crime scene investigators have gathered forensic evidence at the site, he said.
