Merseyside Police are appealing for information following reports of deliberately set fires at Crosby Beach on Sunday evening.

Reports that several large fires were reportedly set in sand dunes at Crosby beach were received at around 6:50 pm.

Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service went to the area and put out the fires.

There are no reports of any injuries being caused by the blaze.

Community Policing Inspector Duncan Swann said: “Starting fires deliberately in the manner we saw in Crosby last night is utterly irresponsible, putting our communities at risk and placing unnecessary strain on our already overstretched emergency services.”

“Thankfully the fire service extinguished the fire before anyone was harmed.

This reckless disregard for people and property is simply not acceptable in Merseyside.”

“If you know anything about this incident, please come forward as your information could help assist us with enquiries.”

Anyone with any information should contact Merseyside Police via Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ with reference 0783 of Sunday 7th March.

You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at
