Arson attack destroys police car

A police car’s been written off after it was set on fire in the early hours of this morning in Daventry.

The Vauxhall Astra was parked at the Danetree Garage on the West March Industrial Estate when it was set on fire just after 1 o’clock.

A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said: “This was a mindless attack on a police car which sadly takes one of our response vehicles off the road.

“Fortunately it won’t cause too much of a logistical problem as we will be able to get our fleet back up to full strength quite easily.

“We would however appeal to anyone who knows anything about this incident to contact us with that information.”

Police are hunting two men seen running from the area.
