Arson attacks in Smallfield and Horley.

There have been more arson attacks in the Horley and Smallfield area. The latest is the deliberate arson attack on a caravan on Redehall Road, Keepers Corner on 11th/12th March. Over the last year or so several caravans have been set on fire. Often these have caused considerable damage to the adjoining house and put the occupants at risk. Barns and cars have also been set on fire. Whoever is doing this needs to be stopped before somebody is killed or injured.

According to the Surrey Police crime map for Smallfield it states that in December 2016 a suspect has been charged for one attack. If anyone knows who is doing this, or can help the police with information, we urge them to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Below are just a few of the arson attacks showing on the Surrey Police crime map for Smallfield.
