Police search for two men after a car was destroyed in a fire

Police are searching for two men after a car was destroyed in a fire in south Belfast early on Sunday morning.

It happened in McClure Street shortly before 4.35am, although officers are not linking it to a spate of recent arson attacks on vehicles in the area.

The attack saw a blue Fiat 500 set alight and extensively damaged. No one was injured.

A police spokesman said two men had been seen running from the vehicle at the same time as the incident.

Chief Inspector Robert Murdie also appealed for witnesses to come forward.

Last Wednesday, a 34-year-old man was arrested in Ballynafeigh in south Belfast in connection with the burning-out of around 10 cars in the area since the end of September.
