Police are appealing for information after a spate of fires in Amble.

Neighbourhood officers are aware of a number of small bonfire style fires being started by The Braid in the woods near the Marina.

“Extra officer patrols are being carried out in the area to carry out enquiries and reassure any concerned members of the community.”

Any witnesses, or anyone who has any information about the arsons, should contact Northumbria Police on 101 or alternatively Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
