Three cars were damaged by fire in a suspected arson attack.

Police are investigating after the vehicles were damaged outside an address in Southwell Close, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, at around 2am on Wednesday.

Officers believe that one of the cars was initially targeted, before flames then spread to vehicles at the front and rear.

An investigation is underway and house to house enquiries have been undertaken.

Inspector Mark Dickson, district commander for Ashfield, said: “This was a deliberate and reckless act carried out in close proximity to people’s homes. Thankfully nobody was hurt but this incident could have been a great deal worse.

“We are currently working to understand what happened and are keen to speak with anyone who may have seen someone acting suspiciously before or after the attack.

“Arson is an extremely serious offence and we are determined to find the person responsible for what happened here.”

If you have any information please call police on 101 quoting incident 46 of 2 June.
