Do you know where your children are right now?

Can you be sure you know what they are doing?

Emergency Services were called on Sunday afternoon following reports that a group of youths were seen starting, and then running away from a fire on wasteland on Trebanog Hill.

The fire quickly spread to cover approximately 12 hectares of land and damaged residential properties.
Two people suffered minor burns and a number people suffered from smoke inhalation.

Grass fires have increased significantly since schools were closed – there have been over 100 since March 20.

The sad and disappointing reality is that many of them are deliberate and some have involved children who should be at home.

At this crucial time, the thick smoke from fires can increase the risk to the elderly and vulnerable people with medical conditions and healthcare professionals have highlighted the dangers of smoke caused by grass fires to COVID-19 sufferers who may be living nearby.

They also cause damage to property and wildlife.

Please report suspicious incidents to us as they happen.

Call 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

In an emergency, always dial 999.
