Cheshire Police hunt Warrington Arsonist

Cheshire Police are hunting a Warrington man in connection with a series of fires last week.

The first in a spate of attacks happened on Lovely Lane, where two people were injured and thousands of pounds worth of fire damage was caused.

The two were said to have been taken to hospital and later released with no serious injuries.

Several small fires were then started in the surrounding area, all of which the Police believe to be connected.

A spokesperson for the Cheshire Police said: “At this stage police and fire are liaising to determine the causes of the fires, which are being viewed as suspicious.

“Police are also looking at the possibility that the fires have been started by the same person or persons.

“Police would like to reassure the community that all the incidents reported were swiftly dealt with and are now under control.”
