ARSONISTS in St Neots have caused thousands of pounds worth of damage to their victim’s car.

Police are appealing for witnesses after two arson attacks outside a home in Rowley Road, St Neots.

On both occasions the victim’s Mercedes car was targeted.

In the most recent incident, the victim heard a thud and then the sound of a car driving off at 9.30pm, on Tuesday. When they looked out of their window they saw a fire underneath the vehicle and flames coming from the bonnet.

The attack follows a similar incident on July 3, when the victim discovered the burned remains of an accelerant on his driveway.

Detective Constable Chris Bacon, investigating, said: “This incident has caused thousands of pounds worth of damage. The victim has no idea why he has been targeted and has been left very upset by the damage caused to his vehicle.”
