The Smithy Family have offered a £5,000 reward for information following a devastating fire at their home.

On Wednesday night (July 14), Nick and Jess Smith had to evacuate their young daughters, Isabella, 9, and Amelia, 6, and their newborn baby boy from their house.

This spread to the exterior of their semi-detached house, and mobility scooters and the contents of a skip in front of the property were also burned as well.

In a video shared on the family's TikTok account today (July 17), he said his wife and kids will only feel safe once those behind the attack are locked up.

The reward, offered by Jess’ mum, is for any information given to the police that leads to an arrest.

Nick gave details of the reward in a TikTok video

Nick said: “Jess’s mum has put a £5000 reward for any information given to the police leading to the arrest of the two people that committed the crime or someone who may have organised it

“If anyone knows anything please let's make sure no one else goes through this again and help us feel safe again.

“At the minute we’re looking over our shoulder thinking who is that, who’s done this.

“Jess doesn’t feel safe and nor do the kids and to be honest, quite frankly, nor do I.

“So if anyone can help us begin to feel a little bit safer again and you have information, please give it to the police and help find the person that did this.

“As I said there’s a £5,000 reward. Thanks for listening.”
