Police in Derry are renewing their appeal for information after two cars were destroyed in an arson attack in the Waterside area of the city last month.

The vehicles were reported to have been set on fire at around 10.20pm on Sunday, March 13, in the Lincoln Courts estate. 

Both vehicles – a Nissan and a Seat – were left completely gutted as a result of the incident.

Sergeant Garth Bennett said: "We have made a number of enquiries in relation to this incident to establish what occurred, who was involved and a motive, and today we are renewing our appeal.

“If you were in the area between 10.20pm and 10.25pm and saw any suspicious activity, including vehicles being driven in a suspicious manner, call us.

"In particular, we want to hear from anyone who saw two men running out of Lincoln Courts towards Woodburn Park. These males are reported to have worn dark-coloured clothing. Anyone who can assist our investigation is asked to call us on."

Anyone with any information can call the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 1839 of 13/03/22.
