AN AR­SON­IST is thought to have set fire to a car on the We­ston es­tate.

The blaze took hold of the white Peu­geot 106 on Went­worth Av­enue in the early hours of Satur­day morn­ing.

Fire­fight­ers from Mac­cles­field at­tended to find the car well alight and used a hose reel to deal with it. Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the fire which is thought to have been started de­lib­er­ately.

A po­lice spokesman said: “This is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated as ar­son. The in­ci­dent was re­ported to po­lice at ap­prox­i­mately 3.40am on Satur­day, Jan­uary 23 and in­volved a White Peu­geot 106 which was parked out­side an ad­dress on Went­worth Av­enue.”

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion is urged to call Cheshire Po­lice on 101 or Crimestop­pers anony­mously on 0800 555 111.
