Police have renewed their plea for witnesses following three arson attacks in Crowland.

Resident Peter Bird said the town looked like “a scene from the Blitz” in the early hours of Saturday with four fire crews and numerous police dealing with two car fires and a fire at the Co-op’s loading bay.

Police are pressing on with enquiries and forensic tests of the burned-out cars, but say the answer lies in the community.

Insp Jim Tyner said: “So far we haven’t had any response to my earlier appeal for information.

“We always treat arson seriously because of the potential for harm or significant damage.

“Crowland is a close-knit community and it is likely that the solution to who caused these fires lies within the community.

“I urge anyone with information to come forward.”
