Update: Police to step up patrols after two cars torched in Littlemoor

Dorset Echo: BURNT: One of the damaged cars BURNT: One of the damaged cars

TWO cars have been torched during an alleged arson attack in the early hours of the morning.

One fire crew from Weymouth fire station attended the scene at The Doves in Littlemoor shortly before 3am and discovered two cars which were well alight.

Dorset Police said the two cars targeted were a red Fiat Grande Punto registered to a Weymouth man and a black Mazda MX-5 registered to a Weymouth woman.

Police have vowed to step up patrols in the area.

A spokesperson for Dorset Fire and Rescue Service said: “One Weymouth fire crew were called to the incident at 2.44am in the early hours of this morning. Firefighters tackled the car fires using two sets of breathing apparatus and two hose reel jets.

“The cause of the car fires is believed to be deliberate and police are investigating further.”

One Littlemoor resident, who did not wish to be named, is urging anyone with any information to contact the police, saying next time ‘could be much more serious’ if the offenders are not caught.

He added: “Whoever did this doesn’t realise that they are not just burning a car – there could have been a family sitting in either one of those cars. I woke up in the middle of the night and went outside after hearing the car alarms. The two car owners were watching as their cars went up in flames and you could see they were absolutely devastated.

“Residents here were worried the fire would spread to the nearby houses because it was quite a big blaze – incidents like this need to stop and residents here are quite frankly fed up.”

This incident follows a recent attack on a man by four youths in the same area.

Littlemoor resident Jan Hinton also had her car torched in August last year and another arson attack in January of last year saw four people arrested.

Dorset Police are appealing for witnesses to the latest incident and anyone with information should call 101, quoting crime reference number 15:16.

Police said it happened in a car park close to Nuthatch Close.

Detective Sergeant Nicky Baker, of Weymouth CID, said: “This is a very upsetting incident for the victims and local residents in the area.

“It appears that these vehicles, which were parked next to each other, were set on fire deliberately. This behaviour is highly irresponsible and extremely dangerous – it was fortunate no one was injured.

“I urge anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area at the time to come forward.

“Any witnesses or anyone with information are should contact the police as soon as possible.

“All calls are treated in the strictest confidence.”

Inspector Neil Wood, of Weymouth police said: “I would like to reassure residents in Littlemoor that extra patrols are out in the area in response to this incident.

“Dorset Police has been working hard with our partner agencies to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour on the estate in the last 12 months and these issues will not be tolerated.”

As it appears that once again the Police are powerless to stop these on-going issues, perhaps it is time the residents took some action by forming a 'vigilante' group. I fear that unless they stand up and start to defend their freedom and property these thugs will go on causing misery to the many decent folks around them.

Leigh park, Portsmouth. That's a council estate, not a few hundred houses in some green fields overlooking a lovely seaside town.
Teenage kids get up to bad things on Dorchester road. Kids living in Bincleaves will be plotting to take drugs, rape, bully someone until they commit suicide etc. why do you think it's confined to people that live on a "council estate"?

Save for the police being on every street corner in Littlemoor during darkness I fail to understand your statement that once again the police are powerless to act. Easy to criticise on here!

With all the electronic surveillance gismos available these days it some form of camera / heat sensor arrangement wouldn't cost, and would probably save a fortune in Police O/T.

However, I still think self help / ownership is the best answer

13 Car Fires in and around Weymouth since May 2013, 9 of them on the Moor and all deliberatley started. how do you deal with it? well policing it 24/7 is impractiable, you cannot have cameras on every corner and you cannot apply a curfew for the sake of it. in short, thier is no answer only blame. blame the parents of these so called idiots, who have been raised to flout the law and common decency, just because they chose to follow a path of criminal activity, yet again, decent hard working citizens are being punished, not only have they lost cars, i would imagine their insurance goes up. The parents of these so called cretins know who they are, it is not difficult in an area like the moor to know who they are, for one, a decent parent would know where the children are or should be at a decent hour, they should be the ones when the child is caught to be punished as well if the child is under 16. failing that (which will never happen as we have far too many do gooders) i hope we go back to the 50-60-70s when crime was dealt with by the neighborhood, the Krays (apart from 1 or 2 murders) had the right idea, thier was no trouble, theft, burglary, rape, arson or even scrumping in their patch, and no i dont condone this type of activity, but i bet all the decent hard working people wish they had that now. nothing but Scum are these people, they have no right to be even housed, fed or watered on the back of decent tax payers in that area, obliviously do not work or they would appriciate how hard things are to come by these days. UKIP are creeping even closer to leadership in this country, the only thing they lack is running the economy, but if they get in, thier will be a lot of econimist wanting the job. The law needs a **** good kicking as well, no deterant at all for these idiots, and UKIP will change that as well. i am not a supporter of UKIP by any means, but this Govt and thier predacessors need to man up and sort it out fast, never mind Central Africa, in 10yrs time we will be at war with ourselves.

I wrote that because I'm disgusted with some of the people I share this town with. They sympathise with ethics that my grandparents fought to keep out of this country seventy years ago. Ethics that hundreds of thousands of men we recall every remembrance day died for.
There is a streak of snobbery and self righteousness that makes me sick. It's no Torquay is it Weymouth. So what if someone lives in a council estate.
I don't deny that there are trouble makers and bad people, but ghettoising them in Littlemoor with a majority of decent people is like something out of the medieval era. Those good people deserve a chance at a decent life as well irrespective of their circumstance.
Most of the rape and abuse seems to be going on in plain sight to me, committed by very Anglo Saxon church members and upstanding pillars of the community. The very people committing it are the people urging us to polarise our towns and villages.
UKIP, what a joke. They might wear suits now, but it would take long for the uniforms and jackboots to come out.

Definitely portland UK. We haven't noticed any trouble out here what so ever. I think the echo are quick to jump on the "littlemoor band wagon" when it comes to crime. Half the things I used to see go on when living on portland wasn't ever printed in the echo.

If you look at this echo article "In the Dock: round-up of magistrates' courts" you will not see one person from Littlemoor, pretty much everywhere else in Weymouth, but not Littlemoor, just goes to show how wrong most people are!

Thats because when they are arrested they offer up information on others in order to save their own ****. Given that these people are a) so quick to offer up such information and b) always doing something would give them police attention it gives dorset police a perfect opportunity to use these little gits as informants. And there is a few of those on the moore I tell you, being kept under the watchful eye of dorset police and re-located. A sleepy seaside town that is filled with the dreggs of other towns and cities.

The littlemoore crime levels and types of crime carried out (although not serious on a national scale as mention by Portlandboi above) will never drop. Its an isolated community containing (not consisting of) wasters.

Green S,
Oh dear what happened?
Within 12 hours of your post (ref man attacked in Littlemoor) we now have two burnt out cars.
A lovely place to live with only a few bad apples LOL Yeah Right.
We'll try living here, then maybe you would have an educated opinion and not one based on anecdotal evidence. This is assuming you don't live here else if you did you wouldn't have such an inaccurate perception of littlemoor and it's residents.i would also like to remind everyone that littlemoor is not a council estate.

It's bad enough for the victims having to deal with the aftermath of all this without the need for vicious online trolls running down the area in which they live. Poor taste guys , very poor taste, shame on you :-(

As it appears that once again the Police are powerless to stop these on-going issues, perhaps it is time the residents took some action by forming a 'vigilante' group. I fear that unless they stand up and start to defend their freedom and property these thugs will go on causing misery to the many decent folks around them.
As there is no option on the latest report today where arrests have been made, let me congratulate the Police here. Well done at last

People have free choice. If they live in Kabul they know they are likely to be blown up. If they live in Littlemoor they know they are likely to have their cars torched, houses burgled, assaulted, etc, etc. So where's the problem? This has been going on for 50 years so even the thickest Dorset swede should be able to figure it out. No good bleating to the Echo. Go and live somewhere civilised.

I'm afraid your comment is slightly miss guided.you are no more at risk of crime in littlemoor then you are in wyke for example. I would also like to point out that littlemoor is a civilised place to live and it isn't the same place it was 20 years ago. The echo does unfortunately sensationalise any crime which occurs here and they seem to ignore or dumb down crime which happens else where. I'll give an example, a drugs raid in littlemoor gets a full front page story whereas a drugs raid on Portland road wyke gets a pathetic fith of a page near the centre. This creates the illusion that more crime happens in littlemoor than anywhere else. This simply isn't the case. I do accept though that in the past littlemoor was a dumping ground for rehabilitated prisoners released from local prisons and this did cause a lot if issues, but as stated above this isn't the case anymore littlemoor is more than half privately owned and the majority of residents are hard working law abiding tax payers.

Sorry I was under the impression that YET ANOTHER CAR had been torched in LITTLEMOOR not anywhere else in weymouth! I have not once said that Littlemoor is a bad or dangerous place to live, I have also not suggested that the whole of littlemoor is owned by council tenants. You seem to have a chip on your shoulder and seem to jump at people when they something you dont agree with.

FACT is that yet another car has been targeted in Littlemoor, make of that what you will.

You are not some high and mighty like you seem to think and you must respect that other people may not always think the same way as you.
