Car set alight - Hindley
Thursday 19th January, 2006

Detectives in Wigan are appealing for witnesses after a car was set alight in the early hours of this morning, Thursday 19 January 2006.

Shortly after 3.45am, police received reports that a white Seat Ibiza had been set alight in the driveway of a house of Smithfield Avenue.

It is believed offenders approached the car and smashed the front window, before pouring a flammable liquid over the top of the car and setting it alight.

Officers and fire crews attended and extinguished the fire, which had spread towards the house causing damage to the front door and windows.

No-one was injured during the incident.

Officers are appealing to anyone who may have any further information about this incident to contact Leigh CID on 0161 856 7254 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A 33 year old man from Hindley has been arrested on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life. He continues to be questioned by officers.
