Bestwood Update

Remember Bestwood, Notts - the former mining community which was run by a criminal gang and which had 200 arson attempts in a year in just three streets ?

It may just be a coincidence, but a young man from Raymede Drive, one of those three streets, is on trial charged with murder and arson :

A teenager has been charged with murder after the raging fire that destroyed a home in Bulwell. The fire claimed the life of grandmother and volunteer care worker Sue Southern (54), whose body was found in the charred wreckage of the home.

Now William Rowbotham (18), of Raymede Drive, Bestwood Estate, has been accused of starting the blaze. Rowbotham was arrested soon after the fire, which broke out on South Snape Close in the Snape Wood area of Bulwell in the early hours of last Thursday morning.

Trial continues. This is a public information post.
