Police investigate suspected arson at four-star hotel



Police are investigating the suspected arson of a car at a popular Fermanagh hotel yesterday evening, in which another car was also damaged.

The incident took place at the hotel on the Killadeas Road area, understood to be the Manor House Country Hotel, before midnight last night, Wednesday March 15.


Shortly before 11;45pm it was reported that a Black Nissan Navara Jeep parked outside a hotel had been set on fire. The car was extensively damaged as a result of this. Extensive damage was also caused to a grey Peugeot 407 which was parked alongside the vehicle during the incident. A small silver/grey coloured car was seen speeding off from the car park, with its lights off, before turning left onto the Killadeas Road in the direction of Kesh.

Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed anything suspicious or anyone with any information that can assist with the investigation to contact officers in Enniskillen on 101 quoting reference number 1385 of 15/03/17. Information can also be passed anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Anyone with information is asked to call police in Lisnaskea on the non-emergency number 101. 

Chief Inspector Clive Beatty said all road users should respect everyone’s journey.
