A charity clothes bank in Kesh has been set on fire in what police have described as “an incident of reckless and dangerous stupidity”.
The incident occurred between late at night on October 23 and the early hours of the morning of October 24. 
The clothes bank, that was located at Station Road Car park, was run by the Salvation Army and police have stated that damage is estimated at £500. 
According to one local resident, Neville Armstrong, who is treasurer of the Kesh Development Association a firework was set off inside the clothes bank.
“The community is very shocked by this irresponsible behaviour. 
“And we would call on parents to know where their children are and what they are doing and perhaps educate them on the dangers that can be caused by setting off such illegal fireworks,” Mr Armstrong stated. 
He added: 
“It is a loss to that charity, a charity that the community has been very supportive of. 
“It was an irresponsible act and the whole community, of all backgrounds and ages find the whole thing very distasteful. 
“It is hoped that policing will respond robustly to any use of illegal fireworks in the area.”
Police are appealing for  information and have asked witnesses or anyone with information to ring 101 and quote incident 300 of 24/10/18.
