M ore than £100,000 worth of clas­sic cars have been oblit­er­ated in a fire in Scot­land be­ing treated as sus­pi­cious by po­lice. The col­lec­tion of 15 ve­hi­cles - in­clud­ing a Volk­swa­gen Bee­tle, Citroën CX Fa­mil­iale and a Ford Thames van were all de­stroyed in the blaze at an in­dus­trial unit in North Berwick.

Po­lice Scot­land says it hasn’t ruled out ar­son as the cause, and is ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion. The owner of the units, Keith Chalmer­sWat­son, says: ‘ We plan to re­build, but the costs will run into many thou­sands of pounds.’
