Date : 16 May 2022

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is welcoming the successful prosecution of a woman who repeatedly dialled 999 to report fires she had started herself.

Amy Winter, 42, of Trefoil Crescent in Crawley, called police, firefighters and paramedics to an address in Surrey Street, Brighton, on Christmas Eve in 2020, where they were threatened and assaulted.

Police returned and she was arrested on suspicion of arson with recklessness as to endanger life and subsequently charged.

At Lewes Crown Court on 11 April 2022 she was sentenced to 28 months imprisonment after pleading guilty.
