A CAR was deliberately set on fire on a street in Ellesmere Port last night.

One fire crew from the town attended the scene on Plemston Court at around 8.50pm on Wednesday (September 4).

A spokesman for Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "Crews used breathing apparatus and a hose reel to extinguish the fire. It is believed to have been started deliberately. Police were in attendance."

Call Cheshire Police on 101 with any information on the suspected arson attack.
