A blaze which destroyed two cars in a woodland glade near Kimbolton is believed to have been arson, firefighters said.

Two crews from St Neots were called out just after 7am on Sunday to tackle the fire in a wooded area off the B645 at Stonely.

They found a “well developed” fire involving two cars and were at the scheme for nearly two hours, using hoses to put out the blaze.

Firefighters said the cause of the fire was believed to have been deliberate and urged anyone with information to contact police on to submit an online report or to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
