Police keen to trace white van in connection with Gentleshaw Common fires

Police are trying to trace a vehicle in connection with a series of fires on Gentleshaw Common.

A 51-year-old man from Burntwood and has been arrested for arson and disqualified driving and released under investigation, but officers say they are also appealing for information about a white van.

PC Adam Shaw said police had been called out to fires on the common on a number of occasions throughout April.

“We are currently investigating the fires on Gentleshaw Common,” he said. “If anyone sees anything suspicious or have any information that could help with our investigation please call us on 101 no matter how small.”
