Deputy Area Commander, Chief Inspector Colin Seaton, said: “This latest fire is one fire too many and it is now time for the community to come together and talk to us.
“We know that it is only a small minority of people on the estate who are intent on committing these crimes, so it is important for residents to remember that if they come forward they won’t be alone.
“Castlefield residents should be able to live their lives knowing that they are safe, and so I urge anyone who has information to think about what could happen to them, their family or their friends if these people are allowed to continue to ruin the area for others.
“My message is clear. Please don’t let these people intimidate you.
“We are doing all that we can but we need you to give us information so that we can make arrests and ultimately prosecute whoever is responsible.”
