Arson at Banks Park

Scout & Guide Centrer

Recently there was a fire at Banks Park.

On the evening of Friday 28th January a fire was started in the recycling dustbin outside the Scout & Guide Centre. It appears that the contents of the dustbin caught well alight and the dustbin, itself, too.

With flames licking up the outside of the building, the perpetrators apparently took salt from one of Aspire's builder's bags and put it on the fire to dampen it down.

The following morning, there was no immediate evidence of the dustbin; it had melted and formed part of remains of the fire. On top there was a charred pallet.

Criminal damage was caused by the act of arson and the police are carrying out an investigation.

If you know anything about this matter, please ring the police on 101, quoting Crime ref 20220130-0678.
