Streetlights will be turned back on in certain areas of Littlemoor in a bid to help residents feel safer.

The move comes after a number of arson attacks severely damaged 7 cars in the past fortnight.

Dorset County Council originally turned off the lights to save on the budget.

The most recent attack happened early yesterday morning (Friday 11th January) in a residential car park at Kestral View.

Chief Inspector Les Fry said if anyone is fearful of coming forward then they can use the Crimestoppers number to protect their identity: "It is anonymous and people can get information to us so that we know who is causing problems out there. We have an idea but clearly you can never have too much information."

"The community have been very supportive of all the work we've been going on so so far. Clearly they are fearful, arson is a horrible thing to happen and particularly when it's a treasured possession such as a car."

Streetlights will also be turned back on as soon as possible as part of 'Operation Guardian.'

The operation was set up by Dorset Police, Weymouth & Portland Borough Council, Synergy Housing and Dorset County Council.

It hopes to make residents of Littlemoor feel safer in their homes.
