Arsonists torched two cars in Littleport in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Firefighters were called shortly after 1.30am to Cottier Drive following reports that two cars were ablaze.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Two cars were on fire and wearing breathing apparatus, firefighters used two hose reels to extinguish them.

“Crews returned to their stations by 3am.”

The cause of the fire is believed to deliberate.
