North Wales Police are appealing for information following an arson attack in Queensferry.

A shed, lorry and a derelict building were deliberately set alight and there were fears the flames would spread to the nearby caravans and chalets.

Alyn and Deeside AM Carl Sargeant also urged anyone with information to come forward and help police and fire chiefs catch the culprits.

He said: “This attack could have had potentially disastrous consequences for the local community – many people could have been seriously injured or even killed.

“People who start fires deliberately are diverting our vital resources away from those who need them – while they are dealing with arson attacks, fire crews are unable to help people who are genuinely in need and whose lives could be in danger as a result of a house fire or crash.

“I hope the people responsible for this reckless act are caught and brought to justice as soon as possible and I would urge the local community to pass on any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to police.
