TWO cars were destroyed in an arson attack at a caravan park in Cresswell and a third was left damaged.

Police and firefighters have launched an investigation after two cars were set alight at Cresswell Towers Caravan Park at around 2am on Sunday.

No one was injured in the blaze, believed to have been started deliberately.

Inspector Dave Simpson, of Morpeth neighbourhood policing team, said: “Fire investigators are working to establish the cause of the fires.

“However, initial inquiries suggest they were started deliberately, and police are investigating them as arson.

“We believe two cars were set on fire, and the third was damaged due to its close proximity to one of the cars that was set on fire.

“We want to hear from anyone who saw anything or may have information which might help our investigation.”

Anyone with any information on the suspected arson attack is asked to contact police on 101 ext 69191 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
