Oh dear, i was only thinking the other day that it had been ages since someone torched a stolen moped, when i look out ofhte window, see smoke and someone has set a moped on fire. A moped was put onfire in the Outram undercrofts this evening (Sunday 27 May) at about 2000. The fire brigade came quickly and put it out. I think elderly people live in this part of the Outram – setting a fire under an old persons house is serious stuff.
There is some hope of solving this one though – overseeing that part of the Delhi Outram estate is a monstrous 3 camera CCTV tower that appeared from nowhere in April to protect the Council depot (in the pic above it is just out of shot to the right – see below for mast). One of the cameras points directly at where the fire was set, one other covers the entrance to this dead end yard. Unless the arsonists had an invisibility cloak it would have been impossible to sneak in un noticed. So let’s see if the council and the police can share CCTV footage to crack this one. Or will it be another case of ‘there wasn’t a tape in’ etc
