A FIRE in a housing block for vulnerable residents is thought to have been started deliberately.

Police are appealing for witnesses and information about the suspected arson attack in Mayflower Court, Haywards Heath, just after 10pm on Thursday, July, 4.

Firefighters were called after smoke was seen coming from a communal hallway.

They dealt with a small fire in the manager’s office and police said it was being treated as suspicious.

A force spokesman said: “Anyone with any information is asked to report online or call 101 quoting serial 1720 of 04/07.”
