Detectives are appealing for information following a suspected arson attack in Wallasey in the early hours of this morning, Thursday 7 October.
At around 4.45am, officers and Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service (MFRS) were called to Exeter Road to reports of a wheelie bin and car on fire.
Nobody was injured and a joint investigation is underway.
Detective Inspector Barbara Hebden said, “This is initially believed to have been a deliberate and targeted attack, and we’re looking to speak to anyone who witnessed what happened, or lives locally and may have captured details on their home CCTV, dashcam or doorbell footage.
“Thankfully nobody was injured but to set a car alight in a residential street is incredibly reckless and endangers the safety of all those living nearby. We’re determined to find those responsible so tell us what you know.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the social media desk @MerPolCC on Twitter ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ on Facebook, or call 101 with reference 21000695465.
