Arson appeal

POLICE are appealing for information after an arson attack in Amble earlier this month.

And officers are keen to trace two males who were spotted in the area at the time of the blaze, who are believed to have been filming the incident.

A white Citroen Relay van was torched in Westfield on Monday, November 7, between 1.45am and 1.59am, and it appears that an accelerant was used.

One of the males is described as wearing a khaki coat and a black hat and was seen running away from the scene when smoke came from the vehicle, while the other is described as tall, of skinny build and wearing a check shirt.

Anyone with information about the incident or about the two males should call police on 03456 043043.
