Witness appeal to arson attack in Sussex

Police are appealing for information to an arson attack in Angmering that forced a family with a baby to flee their home.

Shortly before 4am on Wednesday 25th of March the family of four were woken by a neighbour who alerted them to a fire in the garden of their home in Decoy Drive.

The fire destroyed two sheds and damaged two mopeds that had been stored alongside. Firefighters managed to stop the fire spreading to the home.

We believe the fire was started deliberately so need to speak to anyone who saw or heard anyone acting suspiciously in Decoy Drive late on Tuesday night or early on Wednesday morning.

This has been a very upsetting incident for the family, especially as they have two young children.
