Pontypool RFC statement on Pontypool Park fire

Monday 10th October 2016
 

The following is a statement from Pontypool RFC chief executive officer, Ben Jeffreys:

I have just spoken with Torfaen County Borough Council, who operate Pontypool Park's CCTV systems on behalf of Pontypool RFC.

I am disappointed to share that the CCTV imagery recovered was obscured by sunlight, so we sadly have no viable footage to rely on to bring a prosecution against those responsible for this act of vandalism.

Therefore, I can only request once again that if you have any information about this incident, please phone Gwent Police on 101.

I am scheduled to meet with Torfaen County Borough Council tomorrow afternoon to review the footage and seek additional security measures that can safeguard the facility in the short-term as we continue to strive for a long-term solution.

I also wish to take this opportunity to thank South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, Gwent Police and Torfaen County Borough Council for their support throughout this incident.

We are not going to give up on this and I know you will not either.

Thank you for the wide ranging support we have received since yesterday, it is hugely appreciated.
