Police issue image after building fire started deliberately

Police investigating a building fire have released an image of a woman they believe could have important information.

Officers were called to Newcastle Street, Mansfield, after receiving reports a derelict building was on fire.

The unused building was damaged in the blaze, which took place at around 1.45am on 17 October 2022.

A joint investigation between the police and fire service has since determined that the fire was more than likely started deliberately.

Inquiries are still ongoing into the incident, with police releasing a CCTV image of a woman they believe could help them with their investigation.

PC Abigail Green, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We have reasons to believe this fire was started on purpose, so we are determined to find whoever was responsible.

“Arson is an incredibly serious and dangerous offence, which can ruin or even end the lives of anyone unfortunate to be caught up in it.

“We believe the woman in this picture could have valuable information about what happened, so we would naturally like to speak to her as soon as possible.

“Anyone who recognises this woman is urged to contact the police straight away by calling 101, quoting incident 37 of 17 October 2022.

“Information can also be left anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
