Filed under: Home Security — admin @ 3:43 pm

The death of three year old, Francesca Bimpson, after petrol was poured through the families house letterbox and set alight is a tragic reminder that arson attacks on home properties are becoming a worrying trend. In the early hours of this morning, in Barton, Oxford, a house was targetted by arsonists and set alight by pouring petrol through the letterbox – luckily there were no injuries.

No one was hurt in the attack but the incident has shaken Mrs Woof deeply – this random attack was apparantly motiveless.
