A flat in Mendip Lodge on Clifden Road, Twickenham was set alight on the night of Friday 24th May. Fire engines, police and ambulances attended the scene at around 9.00pm. Plumes of smoke were visible coming from a ground floor flat before the blaze was brought under control. One man had to be treated for smoke inhalation. The fire is thought to have been started deliberately and a man was arrested.
A local source told us, “Apparently arson, hence the large number of police! High drama on Clifden Road!” Police were outside the empty property on Saturday morning with smoke marks and smashed windows visible on the ground floor.
