Humberside Police reaction to the mosque arson sentencing

"This incident caused concern within a number of our local communities in North East Lincolnshire so it was important that police worked to bring these offenders to justice and reassure those communities who were affected. This was a difficult time for the Muslim community, both on a local and national level, so I would personally like to thank the majority of people who provided support to them.

"This will not hinder the good work that Humberside Police and representatives from the Mosque do to help bring communities together and promote cohesion across North East Lincolnshire."

– Neighbourhood Inspector Mel Christine Humberside Police
