Detective Constable Iain Smith said: “Despite this crime being committed in the early hours of Saturday morning, I would like to appeal to local people who may have seen or heard something.

"Perhaps you saw three men in the area earlier in the evening or did you see three men running off up Broomlands Road. If you have any information, please do contact us.

"I would also ask motorists who were in the area to check their dash cams as it could hold footage which could help us identify those responsible for deliberately setting this fire.”
