Witness appeal after suspected deliberate car fire

Burned out car in a hedge
The fire caused extensive damage to the car

We are seeking witnesses to a suspected arson incident involving a car near Edingworth.

The fire service made us aware at about 6.40am this morning (Sunday 24 September) of a car fire they were dealing with in White House Lane.

At this stage we have yet to confirm the exact details of the vehicle, but believe it may be a Vauxhall Astra from the mid-to-late 2000s.

CCTV and house-to-house enquiries are underway.

Witnesses, or anyone who was driving in the area at the time and may potentially have relevant dashcam footage, is asked to call 101 and quote log number 203 of 24 September.

You can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100 per cent anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their Anonymous Online Form.

No personal details are taken, information cannot be traced or recorded and you will not go to court or have to speak to police when contacting Crimestoppers.
