Police appeal for witnesses after arson attack on Colsterworth home

POLICE are appealing for information after an arsonist tried to set fire to a home in Colsterworth.

The incident took place at around 5.30am in West Grove when an unknown fuel was poured through the house letterbox and lit.

Fortunately the fire did not spread beyond the door and nobody was hurt in the incident.

A dark grey or silver car with a Ford badge was seen parked next to the property shortly before the incident.

Police are keen to trace this car and its driver.

At 5.20am a vehicle similar in shape and size to an Audi A4 drove onto the Bourne Road estate and parked up near to the junction with West Grove. The person driving this vehicle may be a witness and officers would also like to trace them.

Anyone with any information can contact DC Karen Delderfield via the non emergency 101 number, or call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
