THREE sheds were destroyed in a "mindless" arson attack at allotments in Redditch.

The offenders set fire to four of the sheds at the allotments in Paper Mill Drive, Church Hill, at around 8am on Tuesday, January 28.

The fire service was able to save one of them as the fire had not taken hold on arrival but the other three were burned to the ground along with various items inside.

PC Stephen Woodman said: “This was a mindless attack on people’s property and has without doubt upset and angered the owners.

"If you saw anyone hanging around there on Tuesday, January 28, running from the scene, or you have any idea who is responsible for this then please let us know without delay.”

Anyone with information should call PC Woodman at Redditch Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting the incident reference 70-S-280114.
