POLICE are linking a spate of thirteen arsons reported across Southampton in less than a month.

Officers say the attacks on cars, caravans and motorhomes, have all taken place in Southampton since August 3.

Several of the arsons, in Bitterne, Peartree and Woolston, have resulted in 'significant loss of property' - say police.

Now officers have released CCTV as part of an appeal for information.

The images show a person police say was in the area at the time of the fires and 'watched' the emergency services.

Detective Inspector Adam Edwards from the Western Investigation Team said: “We have seen several vehicles, caravans and motorhomes been completely burnt out as a result of these fires. More recently, the fire has spread to a house and endangered people’s lives.

“We would urge anyone who owns a caravan or a motorhome not sleep to in it whilst parked outside your house or on your driveway.

"Make sure it is secure and locked and remove any gas canisters and any other potentially flammable household items and materials.

“We have images of a person we would like to trace captured from the cameras on the fire engines that have been called to the scene.

"This person has been in the area at the times the fires have been reported and watched the emergency services.

“Do you recognise their clothing?

“We would like to speak to anybody who recognises the person in these images.

"We know they are grainy pictures, but someone might know this person. If you do, please get in contact.”
