Many of you have seen the distressing images of the fire at Newtown Park this afternoon, and the subsequent blaze at the Kinneil Band hall.
We feel in particular for the guys at Kinneil Band as their hall and equipment has been hit hardest after today's incident.
As there are ongoing police and fire investigations underway at this time we will wait for official updates from the relevant authorities before commenting further on the incident.
Fortunately there was no loss of life of injury to personnel on site or in the hall which was the only piece of good news of an awful afternoon for the Bo'ness community.
We would also like to thank everyone who has taken the time to send us, Kinneil Band and the NPA messages of support. It is greatly appreciated.
