Police Scotland have made an appeal information from the public after a car was deliberately set alight outside a house in Paisley on Sunday.

The fire took place at around 1am when police and fire services were called to Barscube Terrace, Paisley, where a silver Citroen C1, was on fire.

The car was completely destroyed as a result.

Detective Constable John Sharkey, Paisley CID, said: “We believe this to be a random act. Thankfully no one was injured and the fire did not spread to the house but the car was completely burnt out.

“Officers are making local enquiries and checking CCTV in the area in an effort to trace those responsible and so would appeal to anyone who may have seen people acting suspiciously in the area to get in touch.

“We’re keen to hear from anyone who may, for example, have doorbell camera footage or private space CCTV to come forward.

“Information can be passed to officers at Paisley CID via 101. Please quote reference number 0319 of Sunday, 12 September, 2021 when calling. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
