Appeal for witnesses following suspected arson on Copnor Road
Main article content
We are appealing for witnesses following a suspected arson in Portsmouth at the weekend.
It was reported to us shortly after 5.30pm on Sunday 22 January that a building on Copnor Road was alight.
The building consists of take-away outlet Bossman’s Kitchen, a Nisa convenience store and residential flats.
No injuries were reported.
An investigation into this incident is underway and as part of our enquiries we would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information that may assist us.
Were you in the Copnor Road or Battenburg Avenue area at the time of the incident? Did you see anyone acting suspiciously or running away from the building? Did you see anyone carrying anything that may have been used to start a fire or possibly anyone watching the fire as it started?
We are also keen to hear from anyone who was driving through the area at the time and has dash cam footage that may assist our investigation.
