Investigation launched into Purbeck Arson Attacks


1:52pm 13th August 2013

Police are investigating 2 arson attacks in 24 hours on heathland at Purbeck.

Around 45 fire-fighters spent more than 2 hours tackling the flames at Godslington Heath last night - just a day before there had been another blaze on Studland heath.

Fire Chiefs say the fires, that have destroyed large areas of animal habitat, were started deliberately.

They want people to be on the lookout for anyone acting suspiciously and report any their concerns to Dorset Police.
