Police need to speak to two women who they think might have vital information about a major fire in Weymouth.

The blaze, which was started deliberately, happened around 2pm on Sunday 17th June at Chelwood Gate Car Park near Chickerell Road.

The fire destroyed three caravans, a car and a camper van before spreading and causing damage to fencing, garages and sheds in nearby properties.

Detective Constable Pete Lawrence, of Weymouth CID, said: "This is a serious incident where a large amount of damage has been caused.

"Thanks to the prompt attendance of Dorset Fire and Rescue Service, further damage was prevented and thankfully no-one has been hurt."

Officers would like anyone who was in the area around this time or who has any information about this incident to contact Dorset Police, in complete confidence, as soon as possible.

DC Pete Lawrence continued: "I am particularly interested in speaking to two women who were seen in the area at that time who may have witnessed what happened."

Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 17:65. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.
