A teenager and 2 young boys have been arrested over a spate of fires in Littlemoor.

The trio, a 13 year old and two 11 year olds were taken to the Police Station by Dorset Officers this morning (Wednesday 12th December).

All three are local to the Weymouth area.

They were arrested in connection with car that was set alight in the Littlemoor area during the early hours on Sunday.

A piece of paper on fire was put through the letterbox of a house the week before too.

Weymouth Police says they're working with their partners to resolve the situation.

Police Chief Inspector Les Fry says; “I want to reassure residents we take this sort of crime very seriously and will act robustly. We'll always follow up leads and support the innocent victims of crimes like this".
