The image of a woman wanted by police in connection to a flat fire in Walton has been published with an information appeal.

On Wednesday (October 7) police revealed they were now searching for 40-year-old Kirsty Brend in relation to a fire that caused "significant damage" to a block of flats in Walton.

Brend, police said, had been arrested in connection with the police investigation and subsequently released.

She has since "failed to return for further questioning", prompting the wanted appeal.

"Brend, of no fixed address, is described as white, around 5’6” tall, of small build with green eyes and blonde hair. She has links to Surrey and Kent," a police spokesperson said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey Police on their website or by calling 101 and quoting PR/ 45190071378, or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
