Arsonists have targeted an important High Wycombe woodland for the second time in a week - setting fire to another sign put up by Chiltern Rangers.

There was fury on Tuesday last week when signage in Keep Hill Wood, close to The Rye, was set on fire - costing Chiltern Rangers, who managed the woodland, £350 to repair.

And now days later, another sign in the woodland has been destroyed by fire.

Bucks Fire and Rescue service were called on Saturday at 1.45pm to put the blaze out.

Chiltern Rangers, who help look after the woodlands and open areas around Wycombe, with much of the work carried out by volunteers, said the latest incident is "anger inducing and upsetting".

They said: "Another ladder board has been burnt to a crisp to add to the one from last week. Seemingly we have a budding arsonist on the prowl. What though processes go through these people?"

Chiltern Rangers volunteers are hoping to set up a crowdfunding page to raise the cash to replace the boards, which they said are more expensive than first thought - coming in at around £500 each including delivery and installation.

They added: "We hoped and believed Wycombe deserved well looked after woods, welcoming to visitors new and old."

In May 2011, Keep Hill Wood was declared a Local Wildlife Site in recognition of its value for wildlife.
