Our worst fears have been confirmed tonight with police asking for your help to hunt down the arsonist(s) that started a monster blaze near the town centre last night.
An eye witness told us this morning that he suspected the fire that decimated the garages opposite the Westwood was started deliberately. And tonight police have confirmed that they are asking for the town’s help.
“Police in Welshpool are appealing for witnesses who may have been in the Salop Road area between 9.15pm-9.45pm on Saturday night.
“At this time a row of garages have been set on fire causing damage to the garages, contents and several cars parked nearby. Police officers in attendance also evacuated local residents.
“Anyone with information or witnessing the event, which is being treated as arson, should contact Welshpool Police on 101 or contact Crime stoppers anonymously.”
MyWelshpool readers have stepped up before to help police in their investigations and hopefully your help can track down this mindless person(s) once again.
