Caravan destroyed in arson attack in Surrey

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 7:12am 14th February 2020.

Surrey Police are investigating an arson attack after a caravan and a 4x4 caught fire last weekend.

They were parked in front of a house when it happened on Saturday night (8 February) in Haroldslea Drive in Horley.

Four other cars were damaged including two parked on a neighbouring driveway.

Officers say the blaze could have spread to the property had the fire services not arrived in time.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Kristian Baker described it as "a serious incident which has caused considerable damage":

"While understandably distressing to the family involved, it could have been far worse given that these vehicles were parked on the driveway in front of the house and could have spread to their home had the fire service not got there when they did.

"We have carried out a number of enquiries in the area but I would urge anyone who has any information about this incident to get in touch with us as a matter of urgency.

"If you saw anyone acting suspiciously around this address at that time, or before or after the incident then please let us know. You can contact us via 101 or report information through www.surrey.police.uk and quote the reference number PR/45200015817."

You can also report information anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
