Cops plea for help as cars torched in arson attack.

FOUR cars have been destroyed in an overnight arson attack, police have said.

Officers are appealing for witnesses after the blaze in the Barrs Lane area of Derry on Monday night.

A PSNI spokesman said: "At around 11.55pm it was reported that two cars parked had been set on fire.

"Two other cars parked beside the burning cars also caught fire. Police and NIFRS attended and the fire was extinguished.

"All four cars were destroyed as a result of the incident. Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or anyone who has any information that can assist with the investigation to contact officers in Strand Road on 101 quoting reference 2251 29/07/19.

SDLP Councillor Shauna Cusack said: "I was completely taken aback by the scene of destruction and devastation outside this family home.

"It was like a war zone and I was incredibly thankful but also shocked no one was injured in this attack."
