Local police are investigating two cases of suspected arson which occurred recently at the Gunnersbury Triangle Nature Reserve on Bollo Lane.

They say that the Fire Brigade have ruled out the fires starting of their own accord due to the nature of the fires and the times that they started.

In a message issued through the OWL system, local officer Simon Cole said a lot funding has gone into make the reserve a safe haven for animals and an oasis for visitors so it was unacceptable that someone would try to destroy all the hard work.

He asked that if anyone has any images from the area from later on over the weekend to forward them to him or to get in contact if there is any other relevant information. He also suggests people keep an eye out over the coming weekends for any suspicious activity around the reserve.

You can contact him at

Telephone 999 in an emergency where there is a danger to life or a crime is in progress. Telephone 101 for non-emergencies where police attendance is required, to report a crime or to report any other incidents. Calls to 101 have a fixed cost of 15p per call. If you are calling about the above, say you are responding to a message from OWL.
