Appeal after 'suspicious' house fire in Bathgate

A fire which caused extensive damage to an unoccupied house in West Lothian in the early hours may have been started deliberately, police have said.

Officers want to trace two men seen in the area around the property on Margaret Avenue in Bathgate shortly before the blaze broke out at 01:00.

They were described as wearing hooded tops - one dark, the other light.

Police Scotland urged anyone with information to come forward or make an anonymous report through Crimestoppers.
