Residents in King's Lynn are being urged to remain vigilant following a recent spate of arson attacks.
The first incident happened overnight between Saturday, March 26 and Sunday March 27, when a Volkswagen was set alight in Regent Way. A similar incident occurred in the early hours of this morning, when a Volkswagen was deliberately set alight in Hillington Square. The petrol caps of both vehicles had been tampered with.
Two cars were also damaged in William Booth Road at around midnight yesterday when a wheelie bin was set fire to and pushed against the vehicles.
Ch Insp Ady Porter said: “We are urging members of the public to report any suspicious activity in their neighbourhood. Patrols have been stepped up and police are taking pro-active measures to tackle the issue.”
Officers are keen to speak to anyone who may have spotted any suspicious behaviour in the areas mentioned or may know who is responsible.
Anyone with information is asked to contact their local Safer Neighbourhood Team on 0845 456 4567 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
