We are continuing to appeal for information in relation to a suspected arson at Nottingham railway station.

The fire, which was discovered in the ladies toilets on the southern concourse  just after 6:15 am on Friday 12 January, has resulted in damages and financial losses that could run into the millions.

As work continues to establish the details around the incident, we are renewing our appeal for the public to come forward with any information they may have.

One week on from the fire, British Transport Police officers will be patrolling the station, speaking to members of the public and appealing directly to them for information. 

We are also particularly interested in any footage that may have been captured on mobile phones or dash cams.

We would like to encourage anyone who may have been in the area with access to either device to share any footage they may have captured. This may help us in understating the sequence of events leading up to the incident.

The locations we are looking at are Carrington Street, Queens Rd, Station St, Trent Street, Sheriffs Way, Summer Leys Lane, Arkwright Street and London Rd.

If you have any information please contact BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting reference number 85 of 12/1/18.
