Sutton Coldfield arson attacks - local news
Recent arson attacks in Sutton Coldfield were discussed when Sutton Coldfield MP Andrew Mitchell set up a special meeting with the regions Arson Task Force.

The Sutton Coldfield MP met with Sgt Phil Butler, West Midlands Arson Task Force coordinator, and David Hilton, Sutton Coldfield Fire Station Commander, as well as members of Sutton Coldfields police.

The first arson attack occurred in Sutton Coldfield's New Hall Valley Country Park where a boardwalk was torched by arsonists, and the second was at Suttons Parkfield Amateur Football Club.

Following an increase in secondary fires (reportable fires that do not involve property, casualties, or rescues) Andrew Mitchell said he was pleased to hear that the number has now started to decrease. He said: I will be keeping in regular contact with the Arson Task Force to ensure we continue to cut arson attacks in Sutton Coldfield.
