Warning over arson attacks in Whitwell

  • 8-5-2010

Police have issued a warning after a spate of arson attacks in a Derbyshire village.

There have been three attacks in Whitwell over the past month, including one on a house.

A large recycling bin was set alight outside the Whitwell Square Health Centre in the early hours of Tuesday.

On 5 July, a property on Welbeck Street was set on fire while the elderly resident slept upstairs. The woman escaped uninjured.

Also on 5 July, a car parked in the health centre car park was set on fire and destroyed.

PCSO Katie Lee said: "We have great concerns over these fires and want to urge people to come forward if they have any information or wish to report any suspicious activity.

"Any information, regardless of how trivial it may seem, can be passed on to the police in confidence."
