Arson attack on cars in Co Londonderry

A number of cars have been deliberately set on fire in Co Londonderry.

The cars were set ablaze in the Strathfoyle area in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Officers arrived at the scene at 1.30am and saw one car- a white BMW 3 series- was engulfed in flames and a second- a blue Renault Clio- was also onfire.

The garage doors at the house were also well alight and there was scorch-damage to a neighbour garage.

No-one was injured during the incident but the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service has confirmed the fires were started deliberately.

Sergeant Adrian Brogan said “As part of our investigation, we would like to talk to two males who were seen in the area, close to the address, in a dark-coloured car. It was reported that they threw liquid over one of the cars and set it alight before driving away at speed.

“The car was then seen travelling from Garrymore Place, down Clonmeen Drive and onto the Temple Road.

“If you saw anything or have any information that could help us as we make further enquiries into this incident, please contact police on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 86 of 17/5/18.\3
