Fazakerley car dealership set alight

Arsonists set fire to a car dealership on Merseyside, police have said.

Officers were called to Fairway Motors in Copple House Lane, Fazakerley, at about 2230 BST on Wednesday.

Three cars - a Ford Ka, a Ford Focus and Ford Kuga - were damaged in the blaze. Several others were damaged by smoke.

A Merseyside Police spokesman said officers believed the fire was started when a window was broken and flammable liquid thrown inside.

He said the motive of the attack was not yet clear.

Police are trying to trace a person dressed in dark clothing with their face covered running away towards Drake Road.
