Police say matters are unrelated but urge people to act responsibly
Police investigating damage caused at two campsites on the Island are urging people to act more responsibly.
Someone started a fire at Crossag’s Farm Campsite in Ramsey between 5pm on 18 March and 10.52pm on 20 March.
Over the same weekend someone deliberately used a disposal barbeque on a wooden picnic table, damaging it, at Glen Wyllin Campsite in Kirk Michael.
Officers say this constitutes arson.
The matters are believed to be unrelated – anyone who can help is asked to contact Ramsey Police Station or Peel Police Station respectively.
Sergeant Steve Gadman of the Northern Neighbourhood Policing Team told Manx Radio: “With the warm weather fast approaching this is a timely reminder for those choosing to use disposable barbeques to do so responsibly and to ensure the barbeque are placed on a suitable surface both during and after use.”
