WIDNES po­lice have warned res­i­dents that de­lib­er­ate fire set­ting is an of­fence.

Tak­ing to Twit­ter, po­lice said ev­ery de­lib­er­ate fire has costs, vic­tims and con­se­quences and to re­port any de­lib­er­ate fire.

Ev­ery day over 185 fires are de­lib­er­ately started in Eng­land. They said fires blight neigh­bour­hoods, dam­age the en­vi­ron­ment, take up the fire­fight­ers’ time and can some­times cause in­jury or death.

If a child or young per­son is play­ing with or is show­ing an un­healthy in­ter­est in fire, con­tact the area’s fire sta­tion.

Call Crimestop­pers on 0800 555111 to re­port any­one set­ting off fires.
