Press release   •   Nov 02, 2018 13:10 GMT

We are appealing for witnesses after the front door of a house in Alton was set on fire.

The fire, which we are treating as arson, was set at around 5am on 31 October in Kipling Road.

Officers are looking into the circumstances surrounding the fire, but are keen to identify anyone who saw what happened or anyone acting suspiciously in the area at this time.

PC Thomas Stewart said: “We believe this fire was set deliberately and would like to find out how and who was responsible.

“We are keen to find out if anyone nearby has CCTV which covers this area, or the surrounding areas, and would also like to hear from anyone who drove through this area around the time that may have caught something on dashcam.

“If you have anything that could assist our enquiries, then please call us.”

If you have any information, please contact us on 101, quoting 44180408542, or call the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
