Children and young adults, some with cars, have been observed setting fires around the area, there's been photos published on Facebook of groups. The degree of ignorance is literally incredible.

Note the canisters on the ground: just like those Nitrous oxide, medical size, that seem everywhere with used balloons for takingthedrug. An equally serious problem. How are these young people getting hold of such medical grade canisters?

Correction: they are bottles! Doesn't detract from the point : heaps of empty medical Nitrous oxide gas cylinders everywhere.

Maybe the police should have a presence in Potter street. If they don’t it would look very bad on the police if someone gets hurt from this. Of course I know there is more chance of giant monkeys flying out of my butt before the police will take preventative action.

I am sure that these arsonists don't really realise just how serious the offense of arson is, the most serious cases are rated just below murder I believe

Dave. These arsonists know that our judicial system is corrupt. They clearly don’t care for life. If they did, they wouldn’t be putting people and wildlife in danger.

There so many low life's out there taken advantage of the hot temperatures to start fires deliberately and putting innocent people and wild life in danger. So peoe will take any opportunity to course chaos.
