Probe into bus fire is ongoing.

AN investigation into an arson attack on two buses in Gwynedd is ongoing with no lead on who the culprits may be.

A single-decker Arriva Wales bus was extensively damaged and an open-top double-decker bus destroyed by the fire at the company's Pwllheli station during the early hours of July 16.

The bus company is now offering a PS2,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of those responsible.

Three fire crews from Pwllheli, Nefyn and Porthmadog were called to Glandon Garage on Caernarfon Road at 2.30am, and they spent more than an hour tackling the flames.

Two people were seen on CCTV footage on and around the buses between 2.15am and 2.35am, with fire breaking out immediately after.

North Wales Police have confirmed there is no new information at the moment and officers are still investigating the incident.

Insp Dewi Jones said: "We are keen to speak to anyone who may have been in the vicinity of the Glandon Garage on Caernarfon Road between 1.30am and 2.30am or who may have seen someone acting suspiciously in the area."

Anyone with information relating to the fire is asked to call PC100 Carwyn Tomos at Pwllheli Police Station on 101.
