A TAXI cab was badly damaged after being deliberately set on fire.

Police are appealing for information following the incident which happened around 11-50pm on Monday, September 24th, when a black Hackney cab parked in Chatburn Park Drive, Brierfield, was set on fire causing extensive damage.

PC Lucy Garnett said: “This attack was on an innocent person’s property and whoever did this showed a total disregard for people’s safety due to the vehicle being parked just yards away from occupied houses. Fortunately nobody was injured.

“This happened in a residential area and I would urge anybody who saw anything to contact police.”

Anybody with information can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or on-line at Crimestoppers-uk.org.
