Police are investigating a suspected case of arson that left a Happy Valley Child Care Centre minibus extensively damaged by fire.

A spokesman said: “Police officers and firefighters responded to the incident, which was reported around 10am Sunday, June 16th – but apparently took place around 3:30am Sunday.

The fire is understood to have burned itself out several hours before the incident was reported to emergency services and several hours before the damaged minibus was discovered.

Any witnesses or members of the public with relevant information are asked to contact Sergeant Caleb Jn Pierre on 717-2368 or via his e-mail cjnpierre@bps.bm at the earliest opportunity.”
