Police are continuing their appeal to trace the culprit of a “despicable crime” at a community centre in Cricklewood.

Ashford Place in Ashford Road was set on fire after a break-in on Tuesday, February 11 at approximately 4.15am.

CCTV images have been obtained of a man police would like to trace to help with their inquiries.

Detective Constable Carly Anthony said: “The venue is occupied by a local charity providing a valuable community advice and support service to homeless people and the community. The fire caused considerable damage within the building.

“We are determined to trace the person responsible for this despicable crime so I urge people to get in touch if they have information.”

If anyone recognises the man or has any information about the incident, they are asked to call police on 101, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
