We are releasing footage of a fire at a phone mast in Derby as we appeal for witnesses to come forward.
Fire crews alerted us to the incident, off the A61 Sir Frank Whittle Road, just after 8.15pm yesterday (Monday 20 December)
The road was closed while they dealt with the fire, and for some time this morning while the area was made safe. It has now re-opened but the footpath which goes past the mast remains closed.
While officers believe the mast may have been tampered with, the cause of the fire is indeterminate.
We would like to speak to any witnesses or anyone who noticed anything suspicious just before or just after incident.
If you have any information please contact us on the non-emergency details below, quoting reference 21*740241.
You can also anonymously contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, on 0800 555 111 or by visiting www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
