CCTV images The men were seen running away after the fire had started, police said

CCTV images have been released of three men after about 100 cars were damaged in an arson attack on a scrap yard.

They were seen entering Saltbrook scrap yard in Saltbrook Road, Cradley Heath in the West Midlands and then fleeing as flames start to take hold.

Fire crews were called to the yard at about 23:30 BST on Tuesday.

"This deliberate act has resulted in a massive financial loss to the yard owner. It follows a similar fire at the yard eight months ago," police said.

The spokesman said they wanted to speak to anyone who has any information.
