Thankfully no one was harmed as a result of this arson attack and damage has been kept to a minimum but if the newspapers had caught fire properly, things could have been very different. We need to catch the person or persons who committed this offence as soon as possible and stop any further serious incidents from occurring.'
If you have information relating to this incident, contact PC Thompson, in confidence, on the non-emergency number 101, or text information to 07786 200011.
