Arson in Exmouth town centre

Small fire, but concerning

Police are appealing for information about an incident that took place outside Linda’s Lunches, Tower Street, Exmouth on Saturday night (9 January).

A recycling bin outside the property and was deliberately set alight causing extensive damage to the shop front window.

Police are not connecting the incident to a series of fires in Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton last summer, in which bins were also set on fire. Exmouth Pavilion, Bumble and Bee cafe, and a shop in Exmouth town centre were badly damaged, as was a residential property in Budleigh Salterton. Two people were arrested on suspicion of those offences subsequently. One was released without further action, and the other was given a conditional caution.

Anyone with any information which could help police enquiries on the Tower Street incident should contact police on 101 or email 101@dc.police.uk quoting crime reference CR/002056/21
