– Chief Superintendent Tony Forbes, humberside police
The immediate response by officers, to both incidents at the Mosque on Weelsby Road in Grimsby, lead to a number of arrests being made quickly and investigations are underway by detectives from Grimsby Police Station.
I would like to remind people that these are serious offences which are being investigated and those who are responsible will be brought to justice.
It is important to remember that those people who have committed these offences are a very small minority and they do not reflect the vast majority of people who live in North East Lincolnshire.
Two people have been arrested following a fire at an Islamic cultural centre in Grimsby.
