The Town Council wishes to inform residents that, at 00.40 hours on Thursday 30 August 2018, there was an incident of arson that took place along Mount Pleasant. In particular, a vehicle was deliberately set alight and, in the absence of any forensic evidence or information becoming available from the house to house enquiries conducted by the police, the motive for the incident and the identity of the arsonists remains unknown.
The Police have informed the Town Council that the incident is a rare occurrence, and this is likely to be the case. Nevertheless, the Town Council asks if residents would report to the police any person acting in an unusual and suspicious manner around vehicles. Under no circumstances should a resident approach or attempt to engage with such individuals.
