Police have today issued descriptions of three people they want to trace in connection with a suspected act of criminal damage at Pucklechurch Primary School at the end of January.

They say that windows and a garden area at the primary school in Castle Road, were damaged in a fire on Saturday 30th January that started between 4.30pm and 6pm. No one was reported injured.

CCTV and house-to-house inquiries have been conducted and three people, who are said to be aged in their late teens or early 20s, were reportedly seen in the area.

They are described as:

Person 1: A white male of average build and approximately 5ft 10in, with short dark hair and some facial hair. He was wearing dark clothes but no coat.

Person 2: A white, slim male, shorter than Person 1. He was wearing a woolly hat and dark clothing.

Person 3: A white female of slim build and approximately 5ft 5in. She was wearing a light jacket and dark clothing.

Police ask anyone who saw what happened or may have CCTV or dashcam footage from the area that day to contact police or 101, quoting crime reference 5221021395.
