Police have released shocking CCTV images of a car being set alight outside a house in Blackburn.
It happened on Blackthorn Close in the early hours of Friday morning.
Lancashire Police said that after this Peugeot was attacked, the offender also tried to torch an Audi nearby.
The offender made off on foot in the direction of Oak Street where it is thought he then travelled on a bicycle towards Whalley Range.
We believe that the cars were targeted and there isn’t thought to be a wider threat to the public. That said, this could have caused a lot more damage than just the destruction of the Peugeot car.
Police are appealing for witnesses.
