Banbury: ATMs Targeted In Arson Attacks

Three ATMs and Freemasons Hall have been targeted in suspected arson attacks in Banbury.

Thames Valley Police say they are looking for a cyclist in connection with the fires in High Street in the early hours of this morning (5/6).

At around 2.15am, three ATMs in High Street were set alight causing damage to the buildings. No money was stolen. A short time later, Freemasons Hall in nearby Marlborough Road was also set alight.

All four fires were believed to have been started deliberately using an accelerant, thought to be petrol.

All the fires were dealt with by the fire service and nobody was reported injured.

The offender is described as male and wearing a floppy fishing hat, baggy jeans and a dark coat. He was riding a dark bicycle and had a carrier bag.

Anyone with information about the incidents or who recognise the offender is asked to contact Sgt Tim Robinson or the duty sergeant at Banbury via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
