Watford Arson Investigators Look For Car CCTV

Police investigating Sunday morning's fire in a block of flats in Watford - are now looking for any extra cctv camera coverage from helmet cams or in-car dashboard cameras.

The fire broke out at the 4-storey Redding House in Tolpits Lane at around 8.45 on Sunday morning (May 15).

Fire crews got to the scene quickly, and evacuated the building with around 20 people inside.

A woman was taken to hospital suffering the effects of breating in smoke and a man received very minor burns who didn't require treatment.

Detective Inspector Jason Keane from Watford Local Crime Unit is investigating said:

"We are currently treating the fire as suspicious and are appealing for anyone who was in the area at around 8.30am to 8.40am, and saw anyone acting suspiciously.

Anyone riding or driving through the Croxley View or Tolpits Lane areas of Watford or Rickmansworth between 8.15am and 9am on Sunday morning, with a helmet camera or dashboard camera that may have recorded an older shape blue Vauxhall Astra that was seen leaving the vicinity of the fire is asked to contact Watford Local Crime Unit on 01923 472978.

Police are keen to trace the users of that vehicle and any potential footage held by members of the public could prove vital to the investigation."
