Nettlecombe Residents Take Action On Suspected Arson

Residents of Shaftesbury’s Nettlecombe and Win Green View areas have taken action to try and stop more fires set by a suspected arsonist.

The fires have increased in frequency recently. “Three in one day was the peak of it for us,” said resident Heather Charlesworth. She says the fires are now affecting the mental wellbeing of local children.
