Firefighters tackled a car fire after an arson attack in Eynesbury.

One crew from St Neots was called to Bevington Way at 1.38am this morning (Thursday), where they found a well-developed fire involving three cars that was spreading to a nearby block of garages.

Wearing breathing apparatus, they extinguished the flames using hose reels and returned to their stations by 3.40am. A Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman confirmed that firefighters had experienced difficulty travelling to the incident due to parking on both sides of the approaching roads.

INFORMATION: Call police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
