Arson attack, Lower Ince
Tuesday 13th May, 2014

Police are appealing for witnesses after an arson attack at a scrap metal dealer in Lower Ince, Wigan.

At around 8.20pm on Saturday 3 May 2014 an accelerant was thrown onto large pile of scrap metal, at Ainscough Metals on Baldwin Street, and then set on fire. The offenders then ran away.

Police Constable Sean Robinson of Wigan Division said:

“This was a deliberate attack and police take arson attacks very seriously. Luckily, nobody was hurt, but it caused upset in the community and we want to catch whoever did this as soon as possible.

“We’re asking anyone who may know who is responsible for this arson attack or who may have seen people acting suspiciously in the area to contact police immediately.”

Anyone with information should call 0161 856 7124 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
