Police are appealing for witnesses after cars and buildings were damaged in an arson attack in Haverhill.

The incident took place at around 4am on Wednesday, April 6, in Chauntry Road, when fire crews were called to reports of three vehicles on fire.

It is believed that one car was deliberately set alight and the blaze then spread to the other two cars. The fire also damaged the front of three houses, with the heat causing windows in these properties to crack.

Officers would like to hear from any witnesses who saw or heard any suspicious activity in the area.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Haverhill Police on 101 quoting reference 26433/16, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
