Police are appealing for the public’s help tracing a man wanted in connection with several alleged offences.
Officers want to speak to 38-year-old David Small following reports of actual bodily harm, false imprisonment and threats to kill offences that allegedly occurred in Stevenage between 1 May and 23 July 2014.
Police believe he could currently be in the Welwyn Garden City area but would ask members of the public not to approach him if they see him.
If anyone believes they have seen Small recently or know of his current whereabouts they are asked to get in touch with police using the Herts Police non-emergency number 101. Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Investigations are continuing into a fire that gutted a house in Welwyn Garden City where a man died after suffering severe burns.
It's believed the blaze in Heronswood Road that broke out Saturday afternoon during the latest fire fighters' strike was started deliberately by the victim.
A stand-in crew from Welwyn were at the scene in 10 minutes. The rest of the family got out before fire crews arrived.
Deputy Chief Fire Officer, John Mills, said: "The fire investigation itself will be a joint investigation between the police and the fire and rescue service.
"We have specialist officers and we also have a fire excellent dog which we will use in this particular incident. A full report will go through the police back to the coroner and they will form their judgement."
A man's died after a fire at a house in Welwyn Garden City. The blaze broke out yesterday afternoon in Heronswood Road and the man suffered severe burns before he could be rescued from an upstairs window.
Police say they're investigating the cause of the fire together with Hertfordshire Fire. At this stage they're not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.
A man's suffered severe burns in a fire in Welwyn Garden City. The fire broke out at a house in Heronswood Road this afternoon during the latest fire fighters' strike. Hertfordshire Fire says a stand-in crew from Welwyn was at the scene in 10 minutes.
Two other crews had to travel from Stevenage and Hertford. Deputy Chief Fire Officer John Mills said the back-up crews would have been on the scene more quickly if it were not for the strike. The man was rescued from a first floor window by ladder and taken to hospital with severe burns.
The rest of the family got out before fire crews arrived. The latest Fire Brigades' Union action over pensions ended at 5pm.
