Following the fire and discovery of a body in the chapel house of St. Peter-in-Chains, South Crescent Road, Ardrossan, in the early hours of this morning there will be no comment made by the Bishop of Galloway Right Reverend John Cunningham until a formal identification of the body has been made.  

Although the church has not been affected by the fire the chapel house has suffered extensive damage making the building too dangerous for emergency services to conduct a full investigation into the cause of the fire. Once the building is made safe emergency services will begin their investigation.  

The police officer in charge is Detective Inspector Lorna Hamilton who has urged anyone who may have seen or heard anything which can assist the investigation to contact Saltcoats Police Office on 01294-404535 or Crimestoppers on 0800-555-111.
