Droitwich Editorial 3rd Feb, 2015 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016

SENTIMENTAL items worth £3,000 have been destroyed in an arson attack in Droitwich.

Irreplaceable photographs and vinyls belonging to a 47-year-old were ruined about 2.40am on January 17 when the shed on Wych Road containing the items was set alight.

The fire destroyed the shed along with its contents and caused damage to a neighbour’s fence and garden.

PC Joe Brooks said: “This incident has caused a huge amount of upset for both the victim and his partner who have lost valuable sentimental items.”

Anyone with any information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
