£1,000 Reward Offered to Catch Park Arsonists

£1,000 reward is being offered to anyone who can provide information that leads to prosecution following an arson attack at a play area in Arnold.

Equipment at the King George V Recreation Ground was set alight at around 1.30am on Thursday 8 September, causing £30,000 worth of damage.

Nottinghamshire Police are working alongside Gedling Borough Council, who’ve put forward the reward money.

Inspector Steven O’Neil said: “This appears to be an act of needless vandalism on facilities designed for children. Together with Gedling Borough Council, we have been out in the locality – making enquiries and scouring CCTV. I am saddened that someone would have done this deliberately at the cost of children who enjoy playing on these facilities so we want to do everything we can to find those responsible.”

We ask that anyone who may have seen something, no matter how trivial it may seem, to get in touch with the Police and help us catch whoever did this.”
