Police appeal after suspected arson in Dawley

Police officers in Telford are investigating following a suspected arson incident in Dawley.
The incident occurred at an address on Lancaster Avenue early on Saturday 15th September.

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service received a call at 1.50am and two appliances from Tweedale and Telford Central attended the property.

Initial investigation work appears to suggest the fire was started deliberately and therefore police are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in Lancaster Avenue late on Friday night or early on Saturday morning, or anyone who believes they may know why this property was targeted.

A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of arson in connection with this incident but he has since been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact West Mercia Police on 101, quoting incident number 62S 150912.

Alternatively, please remember that Crimestoppers can also be called anonymously on 0800 555 111.
