A fire in a wood in Brixington is now being investigated by police.

The fire happened several months ago, on Saturday, July 28, between 3am and 3.45am near Knappe Cross.

The fire set alight trees and a fence and caused substantial damage along a 10 metre width section of ground.

PCSO Chris Ball said: “I appreciate some time has passed since the fire, as unfortunately we were not told about it until the start of September, but someone who witnessed something relevant but hasn’t yet disclosed that information to the police, may now realise upon reading this the relevance and hopefully get in contact with us.”

Anyone with any information relating to how this fire may have started or if you saw anyone acting suspicious nearby please get in touch with police on 101 and quote crime reference KE/12/2054.
