The driver of an Audi is being sought by police after two cars were set on fire in suspected “linked” incidents in Clydebank.

Officers were called to the scene at around 4.45am, when a Ford Mondeo car parked in a driveway in Knowes View, Faifley, was set alight.

A second report was received an hour later, around 5.45am, when a Skoda parked on Craigpark Street was set on fire.

Police believe the incidents may be linked, and are seeking the driver of a dark-coloured Audi who was seen near both addresses around the time the fires were set.

Detective constable Jack Muir said: “Luckily no one was injured during these incidents, however the consequences could have been very serious.

“We believe that these two incidents may be linked and we are continuing our enquiries to establish the circumstances surrounding them.

“We are working to identify the driver of a dark-coloured Audi who was seen near both addresses around the time the fires were set.

“I would ask anyone who witnessed anything suspicious or who has information that may assist our investigation to contact us.

“We are also keen to gather any dash-cam or personal footage from these areas around the times stated.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland at 101 with reference number 0459 of January 2. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.
