POLICE are appealing for information after a series of arson incidents in Cheltenham.

At about 3am on Sunday, March 16, four tall pine trees in the car park of Cambray Court were set alight. The heat from the fire also caused damage to several cars. There was also a bin fire on Rodney Road, nearby.

An hour later, a hedge at a property in Coltham Road was set on fire, causing extensive damage.

In the third incident, it was reported that an attempt had been made to set fire to a garden shed and an outhouse at a house in Cirencester Road on the same night.

Police are linking the first two incidents and investigating a possible link with the third.
