Police cordons in place after Royal Mail van fire in Pinner

There are police cordons in Pinner this morning after an incident that is believed to have happened overnight.

Two Royal Mail vans have been the focus of a police investigation today. The first van, which was severely damaged by fire, was found parked outside the Lidl supermarket on Bridge Street.

A second van has been spotted just outside the Pinner Police Station on Waxwell Lane.

Police have cordoned off both areas and officers remain at the scene. The burnt-out van, particularly, has drawn concern from local residents this morning who have reached out for details on the incident.

A spokesperson for Met Police said, “At approximately 02.25hrs on Sunday 19th May 2024, police were called to Bridge Street in Pinner having received a call from a member of the public reporting a Royal Mail van partially ablaze. Officers attended, along with members of the London Fire Brigade, who extinguished the fire.

“A second Royal Mail van was parked a short distance away, but this was found to be undamaged. The fire is believed to have been started deliberately, and enquiries are ongoing.

“Anyone who was in the area of Bridge Street at the time, and witnessed anything suspicious, is asked to call 101, quoting CAD: 827/19MAY24.”
