A spate of arson attacks in the Mile Cross area, which has left a mother of three too scared to sleep, has prompted police to hold a special surgery in the city.

Emma Carrgilson said she and her neighbours on Appleyard Crescent were living in constant fear following six weeks of arson attacks targeting bins, cars and a summer house.

The incidents have prompted police to hold an Engagement Surgery on the green at the junction of Suckling Avenue and Rye Avenue on Thursday, July 4 between 10am and 11.30am.

People can come and get advice or support from police or raise any concerns they might have.

Anyone with information about the arsons should call police on 101.
