Police are appealing for witnesses after an arson in Quince Tree Close, South Ockendon.
At 2am on Monday, October 11, a suspect set fire to a green Vauxhall Astra, completely destroying it and two other cars nearby. A total £6,000 damage was caused.
Laura Anderson, spokesperson for Essex Police, said: “This was an extremely dangerous thing to do. Now three car owners have the hassle and expense of going through their insurers to recoup their money to get new cars, all because a mindless vandal did this. If you know who is responsible, we want to hear from you.”
