Chelsea Sees Massive Reduction In Arson
Deliberate fires in Kensington and Chelsea have dropped by 94 per cent over the last decade.

That’s according to new figures released by London Fire Brigade; the figure across the rest of the capital is a little less – at nearly 90 per cent fewer.

Last year the number of deliberate fires in London was around 81 each week. While in 2003 crews were attending, on average, 644 a week.

The sharp decline in can, in part, be attributed to the increasing scrap value of motor vehicles making it less likely that they’ll be abandoned and subject to arson.
