Police are appealing for witnesses after three cars were deliberately set on fire in Johnstone.

Around 1.15am in the early hours of this morning police received a report of two Mercedes cars on fire in a driveway in Churchill Avenue.

Police then were told of another Mercedes car on fire in Sheldrake Place around 3.30am this morning.

Following a joint investigation between Police Scotland and Scottish Fire and Rescue, the fires are being treated as wilful.

Detective Sergeant Ally Semple from Paisley CID said: “Thankfully nobody was hurt during this incident however it was nonetheless a deliberate and very dangerous act.

“It is of utmost importance that we trace those responsible and I would appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time and saw anything suspicious to let us know as soon as possible.

“Anyone with information can contact police on 101 or call CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 where all calls will be anonymous.”
