Letting agent renews appeal for help after arson attack

A lettings and sales agent in the Midlands has renewed his appeal for help following an apparent arson attack on his office.

In May it emerged that Mohammed Aftab’s office in Wolverhampton, branded as Landlords Sales and Lettings Limited, was targeted twice in one week. 

Shop windows were smashed by bricks in the first incident, while there was an allaged arson attack on the rear of the building some days later. 

The windows had showed Labour Party posters from the inside of the office. Aftab told the local Express & Star newspaper that he had agreed with Labour officials for the party to use part of his building as a committee room to help organise party canvassing and election day activities. 

“I have been left devastated, shocked and shaken by the events. It is hard to think that there are people out there who have planned trying to burn the place down. Whoever has done this have put lives at risk and must not like us. I can’t pinpoint who it could be or why this happened” he told the local press.

Now he has released a CCTV image showing a man in a grey hooded top, outside the premises apparently at the time of the window breakages. 

"We are determined not to let this go and if anyone has any information I urge them to get in touch with police" he says.

Police say they are still pursuing the case and anyone with information should call 101.
