Police in appeal after another arson attack on car in Torquay
POLICE are appealing for the public help stop a spate of arson attacks on cars in Torquay.
The latest incident happened in Warberry Road West in the early hours of Friday, October 12, when fire crews were called to a burning Renault Clio parked outside a house.
Detectives have made house-to-house inquiries in the area in an attempt to solve the arson attacks mainly in the Ellacombe and Plainmoor areas.
In July, police said they were investigating possible links between two incidents in two days which left five cars damaged in Braddons Hill Road East and Lower Woodfield Road.

The Herald Express also reported an incident earlier in the year in Bronshill Road.
Police have no evidence the crimes are linked but have stepped up efforts to crack down on the number of attacks.
DC Sarah Briggs said: "There have obviously have been other similar incidents but it is unknown whether or not they may be linked at present."
She has appealed for witnesses and anyone with intelligence about who may be committing the crimes to contact police.
Anyone with information should call 101 quoting crime reference ST7346.
